Community Work

Norea is especially dedicated to organizations that focus on women, girls, and children. She has volunteered as a band coach and guitar instructor at Rain City Rock Camp for Girls and as a grantwriter for Open Arms Perinatal Services, Passages Northwest, and Lake Washington Girls Middle School.


Norea spends most of her free time with her husband and two adorably sweet kids who never misbehave and always eat their vegetables. She is a long-time yoga practitioner and instructor, an insatiable reader, an avid gardener and cook, a sometimes composer of music, and a highly skilled nap-taker.
