As an educator with a master's degree in education and dual-bachelor's degrees in biology and English, Norton claims a working knowledge of how the city can put hightech tools to work.

Norton works as a high school science teacher in the Goodhue County Education District. She currently serves on the Red Cottage Montessori Board and the Red Wing Sustainability Commission.
