As President and CEO, Lorena is the heart and soul of the organization, leading the program since founding it in late 2016. Her vision for a non-profit education program that informs teenagers and adults about the effects of food choices on our health, the environment and animals has been realized and continues to reach students and others throughout the US, Canada and Australia. ECP is now the nation's largest, most effective non-profit education program focused on the issues related to animal agriculture and its effects on the whole planet.
Lorena has spoken on the effectiveness of education in the health, animal and environmental movement at conferences, colleges, and high schools throughout the U.S.
Lorena has an undergraduate degree in Zoology from Texas A&M University and a graduate degree in Ecology and Sustainable Development (Argentina). Since her teen years, she has been an advocate for the environment and has lectured extensively on related topics in the US, Argentina, and Bolivia. She began ECP by personally lecturing to students in the greater Atlanta area. She continues to regularly present at colleges and conferences.
