Loretta is Professor Emerita of Management at California State University. Growing up in a challenging home environment, and later becoming a mother and working as a teacher, caused her to question the popular theories of human motivation of the time. This led her to study the brain chemistry of mammals, and she rapidly drew parallels between this and many challenges faced by humans in the modern world. Loretta has made it her life’s work to share this knowledge of our inner mammal ever since, publishing the internationally successful "Habits of a Happy Brain" and other titles, and tirelessly podcasting, blogging, broadcasting and lecturing, including presenting a talk for Action for Happiness. She had just published course comprising 25 short videos called "Rewire Your Dopamine, Oxytocin and Serotonin to Feel Good Now", which distils her method into super-accessible chunks..
