In addition to farming, she became a Master Gardener from the University of Minnesota, as well as a Master Preservationist from the University of Minnesota. She has been the chair person for her Master Gardener group, and has given back to the community for over fifteen years by teaching young children, adults and the elderly the world of plants, insects, and gardening. She has received numerous recognition awards through the Master Gardeners of Carver/Scott County for her services. Lori's love of nature led her to paint botanical art and to attend the Minnesota School of Botanical Art. Her botanical art has been shown at the Bakken Museum of Minnesota. After having moved to Tortola, British Virgin Islands, the beauty and splendor of the Caribbean inspired her to create an alphabet book using watercolors as her medium, along with fine detail painting. Children are able to see the beauty of the ocean and it's creatures. She has continued to be inspired by the sea, sailing the Caribbean, seeing new islands and snorkeling along the ocean reefs,
