Dr. Lori Baker-Schena

Welcome to my third act.

In my first act, I combined my experience as a reporter and public relations executive with the knowledge gained from my bachelor’s degree in Journalism and my MBA – both earned at California State University, Northridge – to launch my medical public relations and marketing business, Baker Schena Communications, in 1987.

In my second act, I followed my passion for teaching and joined the Department of Journalism faculty at California State University, Northridge, where for 25 years I taught thousands of Journalism and Public Relations students – first as a part-time instructor and later as a full-time, tenured Associate Professor of Journalism. 

And now … I am deep into my third act, delivering motivational speeches to a variety of audiences; offering individual executive coaching and leadership retreat presentations; and providing team building, crisis communications and leadership training workshops to company managers and employees nationwide. The Doctor BS Experience incorporates my extensive knowledge of both entrepreneurs and corporate America with my doctorate in organizational leadership from the University of La Verne to help companies increase productivity and employee/manager/executive engagement.
