Norma started as a Nurse’s Aide, she was instrumental in starting the union with CUPE in Long-Term Care homes, improving the lives of all the workers. She enjoyed working at Lougheeds and then was proud to go back to school and get her degree from Cambrian College and Laurentian University. Norma served as an effective Elder and counsellor at the Grand Valley Institution for Women. She was proud of her heritage and her band, Atikameksheng Anishnawbek.
