Lori Fascilla

Executive Director

I was born into a family of seven 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., regularly experiencing politics, the arts, museums, and historical locations. 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 Centers. Since 1990, we have seen our little nonprofit, serving low-income families, 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.
