Speaker's bio(s):

Lorie Dankers
Spokeswoman & Public Affairs Manager, TSA

Ms. Dankers is currently the Seattle-based public affairs manager for the Transportation Security Administration, handling media and public affairs duties for a 13-state-region in the western and mid-western United States. In this role, she is responsible for explaining TSA programs, procedures and priorities to reporters and key stakeholders; publicly representing the agency's position on transportation security matters; and overseeing security-related outreach programs.

After graduating from the Edward R. Murrow School of Communications at Washington State University, Lorie began her career in Washington, D.C., working in television news before moving on to the U.S. Senate. She later joined the media relations office at the U.S. Department of Transportation, working as public affairs spokeswoman alongside three different Secretaries of Transportation. In 2006, she joined the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a spokeswoman for U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement. She has been with TSA since fall 2011.

Lorie grew up in western Washington and currently resides in Bellevue, Wash. She is a former WSU Alumni Association President and can often be seen playing piccolo in the WSU Alumni Band. In March 2018, she was inducted into the Edward R. Murrow Hall of Achievement at WSU. Outside of work, Lorie likes to travel and spend time with her husband, Jeff; daughter, Bridget; and mini-dachshund Louisa. She maintains an active voice on Twitter related to TSA matters at TSAMedia_Lorie.
