An upstate New York native, Lori Jug earned a Bachelor of Science from State University of New York in Brockport and a Bachelor of Arts in biology from the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. With valuable experience working at the brain injury rehabilitation unit at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, New York, she decided to shift her focus from physical therapy to neurodiagnostics when physicians diagnosed a close family member with Alzheimer’s disease.
Lori attended the Electroneurodiagnostic Technology Program at the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs-accredited Crozer-Chester Medical Center School of Neurophysiology in Upland, Pennsylvania. She went on to complete an 18-month internship at St. Luke’s Health Network in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville, Georgia, which included training in a sleep lab, somatosensory evoked potentials, visual evoked potentials, and brainstem auditory evoked responses, as well as observational hours in intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, nerve condition studies and motor evoked potentials. She achieved her registration in electroencephalography technology and served as an EEG technologist at Gwinnet Medical Center until 2014.
Lori joined Southeastern Neurology and Memory Clinic in 2015 as the practice’s first EEG technologist, assisting in the establishment of its neurophysiology lab and working with renowned neurologists specializing in patients with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, demyelization and autoimmune disorders, cognitive disorders, nervous system inflammatory diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease, among other conditions. As a registered EEG technologist, Lori obtains diagnostic recordings to aid in abnormality
