After finishing her studies, Lorna moved to the family home in Camrose where she quickly gained employment at the Dairy Queen where she worked until the fall when she moved to Red Deer and on to studies at RDC. She received her ECS and after completion Lorna had the opportunity to go to Australia through the IAEA program where she would work at a station (Australian Ranch) for 5 months and have 1 month to travel.
