Lorena Snodgrass


I am the executive assistant for STIA 2013 and Temenos. My relationship with Temenos began in 2010, experientially. From this, a bond and lasting relationship developed. I am also a graduate student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA, studying Art Therapy and Marital & Family Therapy. Though I am on a clinical track, I am currently interested in researching the effects of somatic Art Therapy on traumatized populations. I am an artist in my own right and spend much of my time engaged in creative pursuits. I am originally from Ohio, but California has been my home since 2001. In my leisure time, I enjoy exploring the cultural offerings of my city, surfing, good food, socializing, travel and my kitty, Alicia. I look forward to meeting you all.
