Lorraine S. considers herself a bit of a jack of all trades. She attained an undergraduate degree in Marine Science in 2001 and went on to work as pharmaceutical microbiologist for six years. In 2008, she moved into technical writing for two years, preparing documentation for the FDA, as dry a writing as ever existed, but satisfying work when a drug application was accepted.
In 2010, Lorraine completed her MBA while raising a family and by 2011, she began work in animal welfare management. Lorraine is exceptionally well-versed in the challenges that arise in attempting to balance work, a family, and personal development. While focusing on her career, Lorraine also raises her two daughters, ages 7 and 11, with her husband of 14 years. She knows the daily juggle - er, the daily struggle - that comes from working full-time and raising a family.
Despite the challenge, Lorraine is a longtime dreamer who still pursues her own interests, firmly believing that the only way to attain goals is to pursue them with a passion. Continuing education is exceptionally vital to Lorraine's life philosophy, but she's not set on traditional classroom education. She started taking piano lessons at age 29, wrote two novels by the time she was 35, and regularly photographs and paints the world as she sees it.
As a result, Lorraine's professional career, home life, and personal interests lead to an eclectic take on most topics and she is well suited to tackling many subjects. Her writing ranges from rigidly formal when necessary to a comfortable, off-the-cuff style, interacting with the reader on a more personal level.
