She teamed up with Joti Polizoakis in 2015, however they had known each other from the beginning of their skating careers. They were friends and used to spent a lot of time together, and even skated together from time to time when they did single skating. In April 2016 they announced that they were splitting up, but two moths later they decided to continue skating together. "There was some complication in our private life. But we are still best friends. It was never a skating problem, it was just something in our private life so that we couldn't continue skating unfortunately, but everything was solved," Lorenz said. (, 11 Jan 2017)

She and partner Joti Polizoakis moved to the United States of America to train with coach Igor Shpilband. However, after a disappointing 2016/17 season, they decided to change coach. In May 2017 they announced that they had started to work with Marina Zueva. (, 11 Jan 2017;, 02 May 2017)
