Originally from Morgantown, West Virginia (of “Country Roads” fame), Nora spent her early years performing, volunteering, and teaching with local theatre groups, before being awarded a full scholarship to West Virginia University's conservatory acting program. After graduating summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre, she moved across the pond to complete a Master of Arts at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
Nora has been recognised internationally for her work as a performer, producer, writer, coach, and workshop facilitator, receiving an endorsement for a Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa in 2019 from Arts Council England. She joined the Steps team in May 2021, where she has the privilege of applying her theatre skills to the development and delivery of a wide range of training programmes.
She spends her time away from the office petting as many dogs as possible, listening to podcasts (current recommendation: “You’re Wrong About”), and laughing at her own jokes.
