With 22 years of experience owning and operating multiple residential and outpatient centers, Lorna loves helping people who have behavioral
and addiction problems. Lorna Burr is the co-founder of Imperial Healing Estate, located in the East bench of Provo, Utah. Formerly pursuing
a career in nursing, she changed her education focus to business-healthcare. She now feels that creating a safe environment of hope, healing,
empowerment, self-love and individual treatment is where she can make the greatest difference. Lorna currently sits on the Utah State Board of addiction recovery.
Her primary role and passion at IHE is working
directly with the families in their time of need. She enjoys marketing and public relations, through which she reaches out to the community with
compassion and passion for those struggling with loss of personal identity, lack of self-esteem, addictions and mental health diagnosis which
paralyze their lives. A graduate herself of two treatments programs: a youth survival program in the desert, and a yearlong residential
program - she has gleaned an insight into people affected by mental health and substance disorders and an empathy for those who suffer.
She is a people person with a voice and feels she can make a difference. As a wife, mother and grandmother, she enjoys spending time in the outdoors,
and camping with her favorite “human” - Denver - her pitbull.
