Nora is a Colorado native who recently recieved her BA in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver. She is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, who served in Afghanistan as a Female Engagement Team member. While she was a part of the Wounded Warrior Battalion West, in Camp Pendleton, California, she had the opportunity to volunteer for an organization called FreedomDogs based in Southern California, she learned the importance of service dogs on rehabilitation of service members suffering from Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Nora also has experience in training service dogs and is pursuing certification.
Nora spends her free time in the outdoors and enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, and has a goal to hike all of the 14ers in Colorado. When she first saw the posting of the C-PAWW program through the Veterans Student Organization, she immediately desired to be apart of the team and have the opportunity to learn more about the goals and aims of the program.
