Lori Fascilla

Executive Director

I was born into a family of 7 to parents who were Idaho natives. At a young age, we moved to Maryland. I grew up in a bustling metropolis outside of Washington D.C. experiencing politics, the arts, museums, and historical locations regularly. I majored in Elementary Education at the University of Idaho where I met my husband. Since then, we have raised two Vandals and a Bronco. I’ve dedicated most of my career as the Executive Director of Giraffe Laugh Early Learning Center. Since 1990 we have seen our little nonprofit, serving low-income children, move from one small center to three schools and a summer program. Ensuring school readiness, empowering families and building strong futures is my primary goal and mission, one child, one family at a time. You can find Lori at the Administration Office, Monday – Friday, or by email at lori@giraffelaugh.org or call 208-954-5455
