At 27, Lori Thicke moved to Paris with one goal in mind: to write the great Canadian novel. But life had other plans in store for her, and the novel was put on hold. Instead, Lori founded a global transition business, Lexcelera, and after crossing paths with doctors without borders, went on to creating the world's biggest translation NGO. At translators without borders, Lori has done it all: set behind a computer screen for hours on end, traveled to Kenya to work with translators and interpreters in the field, and grown an initial small network of volunteers to over 30,000 in 180 different countries. All for her love for and believe in the power of language.
