Marilyn and Jeff met at church in Spartanburg, SC. After a long courtship, they married on October 7, 1987 and began their life’s journey together. The Lanes moved to Los Angeles, CA after attending graduate school in Virginia. They enjoyed the diverse cultures represented in LA, and especially the food. During their 17 years in the Los Angeles area, they were able to gain a great deal of experience in Financial Management (business), accounting and general management, in both non- and for-profit businesses. Their daughter was also born there, and completed 8 th grade as a California girl.
