Nora's super powers: Operations Ninja * Process Engineer * Transforming Chaos to Clear Water
What’s Nora’s story?
Formally - engineer, entrepreneur, and philosopher
Naturally - artist and explorer who solves problems
Mechanical engineer and business professional by schooling, who is also guided by art and thought. I appreciate science and the logical process of solving a problem, while also greatly enjoy creative tasks. I design, create, test, break, re-design and optimize to find the best solution. I started when I was young - I took apart my parents’ VCR several times and always successfully put it back together in working order. This exploration led me to engineering: the act of learning how to solve problems with design.
I have been the bridge between technical and non-technical teams in all previous roles. I can speak with any group within a company and find a common understanding.
Life Outlook: thoughtful, open, detailed
Engineering and philosophy are like a hardcover book and a book sleeve - they belong together. Engineering teaches you how to evaluate a problem, create a plan, and execute a plan. Philosophy teaches you how to formulate targeted questions not to reach a concrete answer, but instead hot to refine your question to arrive at a deeper question to see how concepts are connected.
I find connections in details - I solve problems by focusing on the details that often are ignored or forgotten. I appreciate thoughtful conversation or working on solitude. Teamwork and creating teams is my specialty - I create successful teams from scratch, including all of the details to cover hiring people, defining processes, and selecting/configuring software.
