Lorin Palmer was born and raised in Price, UT. Following a 2-year LDS Mission to Uruguay, he moved to Utah County to continue his education. After graduating with a degree in business management from Utah Valley State College, he began a career in the hydraulic hose industry. He managed branches in St George, Orem, and West Valley City before taking a short hiatus from that industry to help a friend with a startup company in the warehouse logistics industry. Lorin later returned to the hose industry, this time as a sales representative for a local distributor and then working for an Australian-based manufacturer as a Western US Sales Manager.
In 2017, his youngest son was born, and because Lorin and his wife were both employed at the time and Lorin’s career was requiring more and more travel, Lorin opted to become a stay-at-home dad while his wife, Christi, continued in her incredible and successful career in finance. A few months later, Lorin was hired to work for the Utah Youth Soccer Association, overseeing recreation-level soccer in the state, a part-time job he still holds to this day.
Lorin has coached recreation soccer for over 15 years. He served in a voluntary role as President of West Jordan Youth Soccer, a recreation-only soccer club for 4 years and still remains involved in the Board of Directors. Lorin has been a member of the Herriman City Planning Commission for 3 years. He is a founding member of Herriman for Responsible Growth and Utah for Responsible Growth, both of which encourage a balanced approach to housing affordability issues in the county and state.
Lorin is married to Christi and has 5 children...Brayden, Jerin, Makayla, Kason, and Cohen. They have been residents of Herriman for 8 years.
