Lori received a music scholarship from the University of Tulsa from where she graduated. She briefly taught music in an elementary school after graduation. For a few years she toured the country with a country band, playing the keyboard, the fiddle, and vocals. Lori had a beautiful voice, everyone loved to hear her sing.
She eventually settled in Texas and put her music away for a while. She was a manager at the fine jewelry counter at Macy’s for several years which eventually led to her becoming a store manager for Zales Jewelry.
