I have known Lorien since 2015, when we first collaborated with the youth empowerment organization she was working at then and my theater company. I was always attracted to her bubbly energy and ambitious nature. Over the last year or so, I’ve been part of her Project Fit to be Free Facebook group and it’s been really helpful in my health and fitness journey. She’s always coming up with great monthly challenges, posting awesome recipes, and providing opportunities for us to be accountable on a daily basis. She makes personal connections with everyone in the group and truly cares about our own journeys. I also am amazed at her own fitness journey which she is always extremely open about and always dedicated to. It’s inspiring and awesome to witness. She is an amazing coach, wife and mother and a woman I am honored to know and call a friend.
