A seasoned international professional musician, teacher, and major event producer from Japan, Noriko has been a consistent working member of the Humor Therapy program since 2005. Her direction, production, coordination, live piano and organ skills, as well as her professional and personal relationships with residents, clients, family members and staff, add an elevated and heartfelt respect to the program. In addition, she provides additional culture, a woman’s perspective and the element of a “family interactive relationship with her husband” to every appearance.
Together Chuck and Noriko continue to create, develop and present progressive programming for rotation and future opportunities to help fill the gap between busy healthcare professionals and heartfelt members of the community. This is done through trust, validation, and building relationships.
