Lori Polakowski is an
Individual Family Support Coordinator with the Parenting Program.

Where did you grow up?
North Manchester, IN.

Tell us something about your family.
My husband and I have a combined family with five children, one dog, one Russian tortoise, and one cat.

Why did you choose to be part of the Parenting Program?
I volunteered for five years before becoming a student intern. My first contact with the BPP was Beth Frydlewicz who was incredibly enthusiastic which was contagious.

Who or what inspires you?
My 3 daughters—watching them become young women and seeing what choices they make for their own lives.

What are your hobbies or special interests?
Traveling to countries I’ve never been before

What’s your favorite family-friendly destination?

What’s your favorite movie? Book?
A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley

What’s your favorite meal?
An interesting vegetable dish with pickerel

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I don’t particularly like ice cream because it’s cold. Much prefer carrot cake.

Share something about you that might surprise us.
I grew up in a town of 5,000 people. As a teenager I thought it was so boring but as a 50 year old, driving down country roads surrounded by corn fields makes me feel calm and happy.
