According to Curran, “I was making $23,500 a year as a teacher and working 80 hours a week.” Life soon took a new turn, after she met and married a doctor whom she lived with in Arizona.
Since moving to Arizona, Curran started working for the betterment of society. She helped mainstream youth from Black Canyon Prison into Phoenix Union District High School, and began devoting more time to searching for potential in young kids who could have a bright and successful future.

“She is very direct. No hidden agendas. She is tough. She can be pretty volatile. But she is outgoing naturally. She’s got a million friends. Always ready to go to a party, go to an event. Me you have to drag,” said the owner of Golden State Warriors.
The duo discusses business as well, and Curran is very involved in what goes on with the team. So, in 2012, when the Warriors traded Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks, Curran was reportedly a little miffed with Lacob.
But the couple has moved past that. She will still have her opinions about the Warriors, and Lacob will just have to understand that! They primarily live in Atherton and also have a home in St. Helena.
Lacob and Curran quietly tied the knot and has since been attending Warriors games as Joe Lacob’s wife.
Lacob was previously married and divorced from Laurie Krauss. They are parents to two sons, Kent and Kirk, and two daughters, Kelly and Kayci.
