Norah Deveau

Administrative Director

Norah came on board with Lisa in March 2016 as Administrator to allow Lisa to step back and follow some new paths. Norah is the organizational glue that keeps us all on track. She is currently enrolled in the ECE program at NBCC and has completed the 90 hour Intro to ECE/Curriculum training. She is originally from Newfoundland and usually has us all in stitches with her wit. Norah loves spending time with friends and family. Her life revolves around her children Keatin and Taylor and her husband Jimmy.
