Formerly, Larainne was the Coordinator for Social Emotional Learning and Counseling for the Chelmsford Public Schools and the Director of Upper School Services at Cotting School in Lexington.

Larainne's academic credentials include a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Clark University, a Master of Education (School Counseling) from Boston University, as well as programs in Christian Education (MACUCC) and School Administration (Endicott College).

On a personal note, Larainne and her wife Sheri have six children ranging in age from seven to thirty. She is a huge fan of progressive theology, country music, social justice, Facebook, lifelong learning, day trips, realistic fiction, being a mom and the United Church of Christ, where she "found a haven and a home".
