Lorra Rudman

Lorra Rudman is happy to join the Board of Directors after years of supporting BCRW, and participating in its programs. Lorra enjoyed a successful 30 year career in advertising, working with national clients including Anheuser Busch, McDonald’s, and Energizer (creative director on the first “pink bunny” commercial). She became a mental health counselor (L.C.P.) in 2012, often integrating nature into her practice. She works in a practice known as Chicagoland’s Asperger and Autism Experts.

Lorra received her B.F.A. degree from The University of Michigan cum laude, and later earned a Masters in Counseling degree. She lives in Lincolnshire, just across the road from Ryerson Woods. She is a painter and photographer of birds and nature, a founding member of the Brushwood Bird Photography Group and loves working in her garden. A full time mother, animal lover and naturalist, Lorra appreciates daily the beauty around her. She is grateful for Ryerson Woods and is pleased to contribute to enhancing its impact on our community.
