After graduating with a B.A. in history from UCLA, Lores taught social studies for seven years as a high school teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District. As a teacher, she oversaw student multi-cultural activities and educational tours of Washington, D.C.
Lores left teaching to enter the non-profit world as the director of a Christian women's organization. She has spoken on being women of influence to women's groups and churches nationally and internationally, including in Canada, Latvia and South Africa.
Lores continues to teach and is currently writing her first book, highlighting the unique history-shaping influence women possess. She blogs at www.loreslive.com
She also hosted "Lores Rizkalla Live" Sunday nights on KRLA Radio in Los Angeles for two years and has interviewed such notable news and opinion makers as Sean Hannity, Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, David Limbaugh, Mark Steyn, Steven Emerson, Bill Sammon and Michael Barone.
Today, Lores lives with her husband in Houston.
