After being born and raised in the Philippines, Nora took a job as a court reporter for 26 years. But soon she found her true calling as a caregiver and manager for assisted living.

Nora wasn't completely sold on the idea of coming to the United States permanently. Between 2001 and 2006 she was traveling back and forth between her homeland and the US, as she started to look more and more into working in assisted living.

By 2006 her mind was made up. She would move to the United States and work in assisted living full time. Like many other people in assisted living, she started as a caregiver in 2006 and worked her way up to head caregiver and then manager in 2013 for another group home. She moved to Surprise permanently in 2008 and worked at another home close to Royal Paradise until 2015. In 2015 she had two jobs, working at Royal Paradise and her other home. Then in 2016, she switched to running Royal Paradise full-time. We are sure happy to have her.

Nora has two daughters and lives with her husband in the same neighborhood as Royal Paradise. It's easy for her to run over and make sure things are running well.
