A Texas native, Nora has always enjoyed an active lifestyle. She became a group fitness instructor in 2012, and while she loved encouraging others on the mic, it was in 2014 that she found Pure Barre, her "soulmate workout." She was immediately drawn to the music, the technique, and the one-on-one interaction with the instructors. In 2015, Nora helped open the McKinney studio as a teacher. She became Lead Teacher in 2019 and absolutely loves training new teachers, encouraging current teachers, and bringing the burn to every member of the Pure Barre community. Not one to shy away from a good sweat sesh, her favorite class to teach and take is Empower because of its fast pace and high energy! A former Kindergarten teacher, Nora now spends most of her time out of the studio with her 3 children and husband. She also enjoys a glass of white wine, reality TV, and nights in with girlfriends. As an instructor, trainer, mom, wife, and friend, Nora strives to help anyone she knows feel loved, accepted, healthy, and strong! She is a better person inside and out because of Pure Barre and wants to bring that same joy to others.
