Learn the latest in caregiving from industry expert Lori Matthias

Lori Matthias, RN

Lori Matthias, RN, now Administrator of the Endeavor Training Institute, is a passionate leader with a compassionate heart. For over 25 years Lori has demonstrated her love for caring for people and helping train other professionals to provide the level of care she holds so highly important.

Her long and full career has taken her from starting as an EMT to working with at-risk youth, homeless populations, a Red Cross Disaster Response Instructor, Hospice Care and Senior Care Management.

Lori took her compassion from the Nursing workforce to caregiver training with her brother Andrew as they opened a training school inspired by heroism of childhood Marvel Super Heroes. Super Heroes for Seniors soon became a thriving learning center with an excellent reputation for training methodologies and high passing rates for Arizona Certified Caregivers.

Now Lori has elected to become an even stronger advocate for training and certifying caregivers with the merging of her school and Endeavor In-Home Care, and as an Administrator has launched the Endeavor Training Institute!

An excellent facilitator and teacher, Lori will play an active role in teaching the next generation of caregivers who will join the workforce highly trained and inspired by her many talents and love for caring for others. “
