In her early years as a speech language pathologist , Lorre had experience teaching Interpersonal Communication classes at Rancho Santiago Community College as well as working with business professionals wanting to achieve accent reduction. She spent 12 years working in a speech and language private practice in Culver City. There she was able to help develop programs for children with speech and language disorders and kids with Autism. She worked in the office seeing children and adults with a variety of speech, language and voice disorders and started doing in-service presentations for the community on speech and language development and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). She worked on weekends providing cognitive, speech, language, voice and swallowing therapy to elderly patients in a skilled nursing facility.

In 2014, she began providing food selectivity treatment to families whose kids have very restricted food choices related to Autism and recently began working with a vocational training program for young Autistic adults, helping them prepare to transition into the workforce and increase their overall independence. She lives in Redondo Beach with her son and daughter and Maltepoo.
