Lori made a name for herself as an award-winning producer of eco conscious special events through her previous company lori hill event productions. During that time, she produced awards galas, fundraisers, product launches, trade shows and conferences for clients such as the United Nations Environmental Programme, the United States Green Building Council, the Mexican Tourism Board and South African Tourism. She also teamed with eco photographers Rissa Miller and Nathaniel Corn of balance photography to co-executive produce the Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase, an annual trade show featuring sustainable wedding and event vendors as well as an eco fashion show.

In 2012, ISES awarded her Most Inspirational Person.
Currently, Lori is president and co-founder of Sister Eden, an online media company that inspires people to make sustainable choices in their every day lives. In June 2013 she got married and the details of her green wedding were featured on the Sister Eden web site in a blog series entitled Sister Eden Gets Married.
