After graduating from Southwestern Oklahoma State University with degrees in chemistry, Lorraine worked for 3M as a Chemist and Weyerhaeuser as a Senior Scientist. Although she enjoyed the challenges of these positions, her dream job was to help people with their investments and financial planning. In 1996 she changed careers to pursue this dream, and has been enjoying it ever since.
Lorraine and her husband, Ken, have a daughter, Natalie. They enjoy many activities together as a family. Most recently, Natalie has taken up golf with her father, which Lorraine has enjoyed documenting with scrapbooking and photos.
