Personal Notes

Dr. Norton is originally from New Orleans, Lousiana, and moved to St. Louis for her pediatric residency in 1990. She and her husband found St. Louis to be a wonderful place to raise a family and decided to stay. They have set down roots in Webster Groves where they renovated an old house that they enjoy sharing with family and friends. Dr. Norton loves spending time with her family and friends, cooking healthy and delicious food, reading books, taking long walks, traveling and caring for the many patients she has had the great fortune to know.
