Cheri Lovre has nearly 30 years of experience in crisis response and trauma intervention and is an internationally acclaimed leader in the field. Cheri's dynamic and engaging approach has empowered a myriad of schools, organizations, and communities to successfully overcome crisis events. Her expertise has also placed her in high demand as a keynote speaker for statewide and national events. She has served on the Oregon Attorney General’s Coalition for Violence Prevention and Safe Schools, and serves on the Advisory Board for Oregon Abuse Survivors and Advocates. Her services have been provided to urban and rural school districts, communities, state and national professional organizations, emergency services personnel, and corporations.
Cheri’s formative work began in the 1970s, responding to the needs of youth grappling with grief and trauma. In the early 1980s, she worked as a behavioral specialist with the Marion Education Services District (Salem, Oregon), working closely with parents, teachers, counselors, and administrators in the areas of crisis response and trauma. It was during this time that Cheri pioneered the unified team approach to crisis response within the school setting. The concept gained widespread acceptance. By the early 1990s, broad-based demand for her authoritative method of crisis response compelled Cheri to devote herself to writing and publishing crisis response manuals, in addition to providing on-site technical expertise during crisis situations. Out of this synergy of curriculum creation and incident response came the Crisis Management Institute.
