Though Greiner is a self-made businesswoman, she is from rather a well-off family. Her father is a real estate developer while her mom is a psychologist. Since 2010, Lori has been married to Dan Greiner, a vice president of her company and her main supporter. The couple doesn’t have any children yet.
A curious fact: before gaining popularity, Greiner used to write for Chicago Tribune along with writing plays and selling jewelry of her own design. Her obsession with jewelry led her to the creation of her famed organizer as she had many jewelry pieces and needed a place to keep them all.
