She taught Primary Montessori in Greenwood School District 50 for 5 years. She has been married for nearly 21 years and has 3 children who are 18, 16, and 14. She has a cat named Luna and a dog named Bailey, and she lives in Newberry. When she’s not in the classroom, Lorri can be found hanging out with her family or onstage with the Newberry Community Players at The Ritz Theater.
