Nora Catlin graduated from Oberlin College in 2017, where she studied environmental studies and religion, with a particular focus on sustainable urbanism and environmental ethics. Prior to joining Canopy, Nora was the Creative Director at Marlowe Fine Art, a small collection management firm based in Chicago, and Program Director at a radio station in Oberlin, Ohio, both of which provided the opportunity to sharpen her office management skills and serve as a creative force in a team setting.
Since joining Canopy, Nora has taken leadership in steering office-wide initiatives as well as providing a new perspective to projects. Nora’s continued curiosity in sustainable urban design and building strong communities is echoed in the mission of Canopy. She looks forward to enhancing her knowledge of architecture and design, and considering an inclusive and sustainable future of cities like Chicago. Outside of the studio, Nora spends her time writing, going on bike rides, and baking bread.
