While visiting the East Kootenay for a Raft Guide course with her partner Steve, Lorraine fell in love with the area so much she moved her whole family from the UK to this “big beautiful playground” in 2007. She is now proud and happy to call the area home. Lorraine finds it quite incredible to be able to walk a very short distance and be surrounded by lakes, forest and wildlife, all while enjoying beautiful fresh mountain air. A lover of both summer and winter outdoor activities, Lorraine does admit she is still getting her balance on skates and skis. Born in Oakville and having lived in Toronto, Edmonton and the UK, city life was not the permanent place for Lorraine, although the world of business is something she’s always loved. A large part of Lorraine’s business life has been spent in the financial services world, working as a consultant for operations, quality and accountability. She brings over 30 years of business experience with her, plus extensive experience in life coaching. Lorraine has an immense interest in holistic health and spends time with family and friends following healthy natural ways to enjoy life in this beautiful area to the fullest, which includes utilizing her qualification in Reflexology.
