About Lorraine’s Pharmacy

The Briggs Clan

Work-life balance has always been a challenging goal for those in the workforce. This is particularly true for small business owners. Chris and Erin have always been committed to making their family a priority, ever since they married back in 1984. Despite all the changes in the pharmacy landscape over the decades, they managed to keep the business growing while also “growing” their family tree. Ryan came along in 1985, followed by Kaleigh in 1988, Sean in 1993, and Shannon in 1996. They have raised four uniquely different yet similarly genuine children who have all struck out in the world in very different ways. Ryan is a university professor, Kaleigh is a medical doctor, Sean is a carpenter, and Shannon is a university student. While Chris and Erin are proud of their successful pharmacy, they are even more proud of their four wonderful children!
