When she is not based in New Zealand, Loraine lives and works in Thailand for several months of the year. Originally from the UK, Loraine has travelled the world and lived in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

After a career move took her to Kuala Lumpur in the early 2000s, Loraine discovered that there are world class cosmetic surgeons with impeccable expertise in Southeast Asia. Further research and exploration into the sector resulted in Loraine creating a business in 2006 offering a high-quality concierge service to medical tourism clients.

While Loraine is now focused on co-producing the TV series “Beauty and the Beach”, popular on Netflix in Australia, South Africa, Norway, the UK and the United States plus over 20 other countries around the world, her daughter Sacha has taken over management of the business.
