About Our Team

Nora Kerr

After studying creative writing (with a thesis on family storytelling) and spending hours in a photography darkroom, Nora worked in the publishing and IT fields. In 2015, she preserved the story of her own father, a pivotal moment that launched this business and brought her back to doing what she loves: interviewing people and celebrating everyday life stories. 


Since 2015, Memoir for Me has captured over 200 life stories and featured in the Chicago Tribune, the WGN Morning Show, and Windy City Live.

Nora is also a longtime member and Chicago-based leader for the Founding Moms, a network supporting entrepreneurial moms nationwide.



Nikki recently graduated from Wittenberg University with a major in English and a minor in Creative Writing and helps with transcription, marketing, and project management. When not getting lost in stories, she spends time with her cats and chihuahua and writes poetry on IG. You can find her @anothersunsettogether

"My favorite part is when husbands talk about their wives and family. They always seem to tear up and get emotional when they talk about how much they love them. It warms my heart! I’m eager to keep learning and excited to hear the stories to come! Everyone has a story and I can’t wait to hear yours!"

"The book is beautiful! Our kids are reading stories that they've never heard before. We absolutely love it."
