As an experienced trauma nurse with a master’s degree in emergency management, Lori Upton has been through a lot of disasters in the Houston area.

She’s experienced the hurricanes and tropical storms that southeastern Texas is vulnerable to, deployed to New York with a medical team after 9/11, and worked a regular job at a county Level I trauma center.

From there, she oversaw emergency department operations at several hospitals and now is vice president of disaster preparedness and response for the Southeast Texas Regional Advisory Council (SERTAC), also based in Houston.
