Lorraine's involvement in the human/social services field took flight in early 1990. She began her career working with children and families, then with care providers in a supported and regulated environment, and most recently working with senior adults in our community. Lorraine helps people achieve and/or regain the self-determination to thrive and to feel accomplished, particularly through their employment and new found careers. "As an Employment Specialist, I also want to build meaningful and lasting relationships with our business community in Kamloops. We are extremely fortunate to have such a vibrant and caring business community here." By encouraging her clients' confidence, belief in themselves and their abilities, Lorraine inspires others to be brave enough to find and secure meaningful employment and understand the benefits of this in their lives. Lorraine says, "It's life changing for them and to be a part of this is incredibly rewarding; it's what drives me to do what I do with our clients." She is passionate about creating healthy, respectful relationships that nurture trust and integrity, and about teaching people how to create and sustain healthy lifestyles through whole life wellness. Time away from Seasons finds Lorraine cooking; food is her absolute passion and her happiest place is in any kitchen, either cooking for herself or others. Her next favorite place to be is back in Ireland, with all her old friends and family.
