"I believe everyone has a spark–that special something that makes them not only different from everyone else, but infinitely valuable to other people who need exactly that kind of spark in their lives."Founded by Norford in 2012 in Chicago, Connectricity was born out of her love for matchmaking she had successfully done over the course of many years.
"When I meet someone I'm automatically thinking of who they would be good with."What used to be talked about only in , matchmaking is making a comeback among young professionals who have had it with sites and apps like Tinder, OK Cupid and "What I offer is much more personal," Norford said.
She and her husband, also from New York, were friends for ten years before they finally took a chance on each other and, two kids and a happy marriage later, are still going strong.
The couple moved to Chicago after her husband's job relocated them and after five years in the windy city are happy to be back in close proximity to New York.
We moved to the Windy City in 2010, and two years later I founded Connectricity as a way to do professionally what I'd already been doing for years for friends as an aficionado— helping truly amazing people find one another.
We moved to Ridgefield in 2015 and are excited to re-launch Connectricity in Connecticut with our first big event at Village Tavern on Wednesday, Oct.
What I do is take away all of the work by doing it for you."Born and raised in Brooklyn, Norford began her career in publishing in New York and after switching career paths into banking, relocated to Ohio.
"I want to give people that feeling they get when you're first in love— like particles coming together…
electricity," she explained when sharing about her business name choice.
From my first college internship with talk shows to my career as a professional matchmaker, helping people find their own way to happiness has always been my passion."The friendly vibe of Chicago's downtown area was the perfect start for her singles nights she planned while building her business.
Now that Norford is in Connecticut, she's decided to relaunch Connectricity with a big party at Village Tavern in Ridgefield."In 2009, I married my best friend of ten years, Brad– the only man who ever got me to move to a new city for him.
