Nora Simon is originally from Greenbelt, MD, a small town on the outskirts of Washington, DC. She attended art school in Savannah, GA, and then Lancaster, PA where she graduated with a degree in Graphic Design. After returning to her hometown and immersing herself into the design field, Nora decided to pursue a different path that led to working as an assistant manager of one of D.C.’s most beloved historic bookstores. Aside from her interests in art and literature, Nora has always been an avid traveler and explorer. She had always dreamed of living on the west coast, so in 2018 she packed up her belongings and made the cross country trip with her boyfriend. The pair found themselves in Venice, where they still live today. Nora needed a new job, and taking a chance at something completely different, she decided to jump into the mortgage industry.
