Power Host Profile: Nora Plesent

Nora uses Revel as both a participant and as a leader with expertise to offer.

A single mom to four children, Nora knows first-hand the challenges of trying to do it all.

Nora Plesent has been supporting women personally and professionally for almost 40 years.

After graduating from law school Nora became a prosecutor in the Sex Crimes Division of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, bringing justice to women who had been sexually assaulted and abused. Years later after she’d moved across the country and started a new life in LA, she founded a multi-million dollar legal staffing company with the goal of creating flexible work arrangements for women trying to balance family and career.

A single mom to four children, Nora knows first-hand the challenges of trying to do it all. At a difficult time in her life, when stress threatened her wellbeing, Nora discovered meditation and learned to slow down, breathe, and let go of unhelpful and recurring thoughts and expectations. She became a certified meditation instructor and after selling her legal staffing company, Nora decided to turn to meditation and helping women full-time.

In 2019 she founded The Gathering, a place for women to come together in a serene setting for wellness retreats, meditation, authentic conversation, mindful exercise, and gourmet eating. She also wrote a book —  Be Still and Soar—  and publishes a wonderful newsletter.

Like so many of us who are on second or third careers, Nora uses Revel as both a participant and as a leader with expertise to proffer. She has the experience, background, intelligence, and wisdom to help both her clients and her friends become the best versions of themselves.
