While Nora was born in Texas, she has spent the majority of her life in Cincinnati. She received her Bachelor of Science of Interior Design from the DAAP program at the University of Cincinnati. Nora is a member of the Society for Advancement of Gerontological Environments (SAGE) and the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). She was recognized as one of the Great Leaders under 40 by Venue Magazine and is a graduate of the 2014 AIA Cincinnati Vision program. She is also an NCIDQ Certificate holder and LEED AP. Nora enjoys working on senior living, retail, and hospitality environments. In all these areas of practice she values the opportunity to shape someone’s experience through the spaces she creates.
When she is not in the office, Nora can be found spending time with her husband, Shawn, her friends and her family. She and Shawn travel as frequently as their schedules allow, including destinations around the United States, Europe and Asia. One of the favorite getaways is their annual Colorado ski trip. One of Nora’s mantras is that ‘Hard work puts you where good luck can find you’. She is one of the hardest working folks we know!
She aligns herself with a sentiment shared by John F Kennedy, “Those who dare to fail miserably can achieve greatly”.
