Nora made a late entrance to the stage and has been catching up with all of the incredible talent surrounding her ever since. Growing up in Lost Creek, WV, Nora loved theatre and the arts, but lacked performance or training opportunities outside of her high school’s show choir. She moved to Huntington, met her husband Michael, co-created her incredible children Joey and Darcy, and earned a BA and MA in Political Theory from Marshall University before she ever discovered the world of theatre for herself. Nora stumbled upon an audition workshop at Arts Resources for the Tri-State in March 2013 and has hardly left the stage since. When she’s not onstage, Nora is a director for Classical Conversations, leading a class of high schoolers – as well as her own children - in classical education. In 2018, Nora helped found the WV Shakespeare Festival and Alchemy Theatre. She served as Vice President of Alchemy Theatre for two years. Beginning in 2021, Nora is proud to serve as Alchemy’s Executive Director.
