Growing up in Sydney, Lorraine studied at the University of NSW before moving to Canberra to master her skills as consultant project manager and senior policy advisor with both the Australian and NSW Governments in the health and education sectors.

Strong ties to Sydney’s working harbour eventually drew her back where she founded and operated well known commercial fleet H2O Taxis for ten years. She is the co-owner of the successfully campaigned Sparkman and Stephens classic racing yacht Komatsu Azzurro, a story becoming legendary in ocean racing circles.
