Noreen has been writing, designing, and managing communications for her entire career. She started at a large public university (with a famous football team and a not-so-famous but nonetheless stellar English department) and then worked for a nationwide bookstore chain (anybody remember what those are?). Wherever she's worked, she's also served her church in some kind of communications capacity—she estimates that she's had her hands on at least 16,872 church bulletins from Ann Arbor, Michigan, to Cologne, Germany. At NCC, Noreen directs ministry, event, and strategic communications.
Noreen has a degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Michigan. She can be pretty quiet, but if you mention NT Wright, you might not be able to get her to shut up. She also loves Lake Superior, trying new recipes, reading big fat American biographies, and Goetze's Caramel Creams. Noreen and her husband, Bruce, have two grown children, David and Madeline.
