Lori J Hasselfeldt was born in Bloomington, Minnesota, spending her early years in Minnesota as well as Kansas City, Kansas. She currently resides part of the time in Minnesota with her golden retriever Skipper and the other portion of the time in the British Virgin Islands.

A graduate of Golden Valley Lutheran College and Dakota County Technical School, both located in Minneapolis. She started her career in the travel industry, traveling throughout the world experiencing wonderful and exotic cultures. Working for over 12 years in this field gave her plenty of inspiration for her next journey. She started her own business becoming a hobby farmer selling produce at local farmers markets. 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 given back to the community for over 15 years 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 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 Carribean inspired her to create an alphabet book using watercolors as her medium giving children inspiration. She has continued to be inspired by the sea through sailing in the Carribean, Sir Frances Drake Channel, Tortola, and her snorkeling has given her an up close and personal perspective of the many creatures that live below the surface of the ocean.

The “Under the Ocean Alphabet Book” is her first children’s book. Her hopes are to inspire young minds to seek out the ocean, and all the living things that the ocean has to offer through her alphabet book.
