Lorie Brew, Project MAX Coordinator (East)
Lorie Brew works for The PEAL (Parents Education & Advocacy Leadership) Center as the Project MAX Coordinator for the Eastern area of the state. Much of Lorie’s knowledge about disability related issues comes from individuals with disabilities themselves, families who support someone with a disability as well as her own personal experience of raising a child with Autism. Lorie is dedicated to the principles of Project MAX, such as presuming competence and leading change, as well as supporting a statewide parent network. Lorie has two adult children and lives with her husband Wayne in Philadelphia. She holds a M.S. degree in Counseling Psychology and Human Services.
