Lawrene Bottorf

Lawrene embarked on her new College Planning career quite by accident, in 2003. Coming from a background of database design, teaching in both the public and private sectors, and small business ownership, she was always willing to do what it took to “learn and do”.

When she started helping Tom in his College Planning career… by organizing the workflow management, she saw the need for relevant education and information in the college planning field.

A casualty of youth and lack of focus at age 18, she dropped out of Long Beach State to pursue working and raising a family. It wasn’t until her teen-aged children were nearing college age did she go back to college. Between the age of 36 and 40, she earned her B.S. degree in Organizational Leadership at Biola, and then her MBA at CSU-Dominguez Hills.

Lawrene’s strengths are organizational and data management.
