Norma has small town roots having grown up in Collingwood. Her sophistication evolved rapidly as she was thrust in to the big city while attending OCAD (Ontario College of Art & Design) at the age of 18. She sketched nudes, attended colour theory classes and promoted her artistic work in galleries. As many young artists do, she sought alternative employment working with Ward air and Canadian Airlines as a flight attendant. She still claims to be the safest travelling partner around due to her extensive safety training. She flied around globally until finding employment at Bell Mobility while working in many marketing communications roles and making full use of her creative flare for 15 years. Norma has also mastered every possible computer challenge, leaving all IS/IT experts in her wake as her technical savvy now rivals her creative genius; which makes her the creative and technical asset of Real Communications. Norma also lives five minutes from the office with her husband, Michael, and two great kids, James and Michaela.
