Dr. Lori Salierno is founder of Celebrate Life International, Inc. A nationally recognized public speaker, Dr. Salierno has a passion to work for causes that shape culture and aid in the well being of the youth of today. She travels extensively throughout the United States. Author of four books: Designed for Excellence (1995, Warner Press), Going the Distance with God (1995, Warner Press), When Roosters Crow (1997, Warner Press), and Real Solutions for Ordering Your Private Life (2001, Servant Publications).
She earned her BA in Biblical Studies from Seattle Pacific University and was presented the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1997.

In 2003, Dr. Salierno received her Doctor of Ministry degree in Leadership Development from Asbury Theological Seminary. She resides in Kennesaw, Georgia, with her husband Kurt.
Salierno is also the co-creator of Teach One to Lead One®, a powerful character-based leadership training program for public schools and other public arenas that has caught the attention of the White House and state government. Measurable results from the T1L1 program show that kids leave gangs, consider higher education instead of dropping out, show respect to others, and--perhaps for the first time--embrace the Truth.
