In 2004, she "retired" and decided to make Gerontology her new career.

Her hands-on experience in elder care derives from working for the Council on Aging Orange County for six years in various capacities, including as a field Ombudsman and as the Coordinator of the Council's Continuing Education Program. Lorie has been an Instructor of Gerontology at Coastline Community College since 2006.
