Lorraine is currently an architectural designer with Smith Douglas Homes in Woodstock GA. She has been employed in drafting and graphic design since 1995 after attaining her Drafting/Design Diploma at what was then Pickens Tech in Jasper GA and is now Chattahoochee Tech. Although she graduated with honors from Cherokee High School in Canton GA at the age of 16, she didn't get an actual college degree in Graphic Design until 2010 when she graduated Summa Cum Laude from Penn Foster College. Life happened.
She completed ministerial training with All Faith Seminary International in New York as an online student and was ordained in New York City as an interfaith minister 2018 June 16. She still isn't sure what path this will take her on but is looking forward to the journey.
Lorraine has been married to soulmate Jamie Tatum since 2005. Second time's the charm. She has a daughter (Morgan), a stepson (Tripp), a granddaughter (Blaise), and a cat (Coco), a female Snowshoe who is addicted to petting and actually adores belly rubs. She also has a menagerie of beloved cats and dogs who continue to live on in her heart. Most recent among these is Gonzo, the sweetest natured cat she's ever known. He was a long hair, black-and-white-tuxedo kitty with a loud and joyous purr who allowed her to be his favorite human for 12 precious years.
