Who I Am & Why I’m Running


About Nora

I am a former public school teacher with a background in nonprofit development and a passion for community building and advocacy.

I currently volunteer with the Uptown Main Street organization, which supports local businesses, and coach the Banneker High School girls’ soccer team. Full-time, I act as a consultant to nonprofits and associations, helping them scale through Salesforce implementations.

And Why I’m Running

As a former teacher, I have seen how students’ educational opportunities and outcomes are inextricably tied to the overall health of a community. We have a responsibility to ensure that we are providing the support necessary to foster a strong, vibrant neighborhood that creates opportunity and provides a high quality of life for all residents.

We don’t live in a vacuum. The decisions that we make as an SMD, and as a broader ward, will directly impact the direction of this neighborhood and the quality of life for residents, both now and into the future. I want to meet my neighbors, hear their concerns, and help to realize their hopes for the community.

I believe that a thriving neighborhood is one that is connected, involved, and engaged.
