Meet Lorraine Castle

 

Writing has been Lorraine’s passion from an early age when she won her first writing contest at the age of eight. Lorraine is experienced in business writing and reporting.  She has 40 years of customer service support in the area of accounting and finance, as well as research, analysis, human resources management, and administrative support services.

Lorraine has a strong corporate background as her foundation.  She has managed departments, supervised staff, and tested and implemented company-wide computer processes. Lorraine is as comfortable with a staff of 30 as she is with a staff of one.

From Desire to Destination

Lorraine has been fortunate enough to love every job she’s ever had. She loves the idea of being presented with a challenge; coming up with a game plan, and then successfully resolving the issue. What she doesn’t enjoy is the commute back and forth to the office.

One of the stories that Lorraine tells is when her phone rang late one evening and she answered. A friend was on the other end laughing as she stated, “I knew you were still in the office! Do you know what time it is?” Lorraine responded, “No.” To which her friend replied, “It’s 10:00 at night, there’s been a major rainstorm, and both bridges out of the city are closed for the next hour because of flash floods.”

That telephone call became Lorraine’s “ah-ha moment” as she realized that the job she loved was keeping her from the people she loved, as well as the lifestyle she enjoyed. The rainstorm cleared Lorraine’s mind, allowed her to focus, and helped her to make a life-altering decision.

After more than 20 years of time-consuming commutes into Philadelphia, PA, Lorraine decided to reach for her dream by ending her daily commute and starting Castle Virtual Solutions so that she could begin working virtually from home. Working from home allows Lorraine to tackle challenging assignments while maintaining a well-rounded lifestyle. She can now enjoy the rainstorm as she from time-to-time gazes out of the window of her home office.
