Lorie Swilley

Lorie Swilley grew up in Pelahatchie, Mississippi and graduated from East Rankin Academy, Class of 1991. She then attended Hinds Community College for two years to get her pre-requisites for nursing. From there, she went to UMMC School of Nursing and earned her BSN in 1995. She has been a nurse for 24 years and has worked in hospitals, nursing homes, and home health.

Lorie’s favorite part of working with seniors is knowing that she can learn so much from them when they share their awesome stories. She loves working at The Blake because she feels so appreciated and cared for in the workplace and values her coworkers as family. She loves that with her coworkers, they can share their highs and lows and support each other fully. They hold each other accountable to a high standard and pray together, for the staff and residents.

When she isn’t at The Blake, Lorie loves spending time with her family, especially cooking for them.  She also enjoys “rescuing” items for repurposing and renovating. She sees treasure out there in the form of discarded furniture, recyclable materials, and thrift store finds. She loves to take before and after pictures to compare as she makes something useful and beautiful out of something that was once discarded and unusable.
