Lorraine represented New Zealand at the Innsbruck 1988 Paralympic Winter Games. She was the only women in a team of 3 Paralympians, emerging as part of a new generation of Kiwi Para alpine skiers, competing in Para alpine skiing in Giant slalom, slalom and downhill. 
Her passion for sport continued off the slopes as Lorraine worked as a swim school manager until last year. She is now a part time educational support worker.

Lorraine officially received her ‘numbered’ Paralympic pin as part of The Celebration Project in Tauranga in July 2019.
