Lorraine is always on the move. As a member of our executive search and fundraising teams, she keeps her client engagements on pace and on target from start to finish. Lorraine is motivated by the transformative power that the right talent and fundraising strategy have for her clients.

Lorraine brings over thirty years of fundraising and consulting experience to her work at Development Guild DDI. She served as Managing Director of Development at Robin Hood Foundation, where she grew and helped manage a team that raised over $112 million annually in support of Robin Hood’s innovative poverty fighting initiatives in New York City. Earlier in her career, Lorraine held leadership positions at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, and Hampshire College.

When not in the office or with a client, Lorraine enjoys spending time with her partner Ted, adventure traveling, cooking, hunting down great food in hole-in-the-wall spots and playing in the outdoors. During quieter times, she loves being a homebody and all things NPR -especially This American Life and Story Corps.
