She was educated in the Italian public school system and co-hosted an Italian children’s show, "Mini Quiz" as a teenager. She completed many study abroad experiences in Europe, Australia, and China. Tori holds a Ph.D., with a specialization in marriage and family therapy. She was the owner and creator of Central Florida Mental Health from 2003-2010. Her weekly advice column, Talking with Tori, ran for five years, published in the South Lake Press. In 2010, Tori decided to focus full-time on motherhood and writing for children. She is a card-making and scrapbook addict. She lives in Central Florida with her husband and two children.
"Having babies is fabulous, but there came a point when I could no longer tolerate seeing my Ph.D. hanging over the changing table. It was time to hang it back up in my office. So begins my writer's journey..."
