Monique Corne', Simonne Tregon (Philippe Tregon), Nicole Huber, and in turn four Grandchildren; Sophie Tregon, Pascale Tregon, Garrett Huber and Hailee Huber. Norene strived for something more, she began her educational journey at MSU when her youngest was a toddler. Norene plugged away and dedicated the next 25 years to earning her Masters. Armed with her degrees, Norene served as Co-Director of the Bozeman Help Center with her mentor Wendy Visscher as well as Director of the Gallatin Park County Youth Group Home. Later, she opened her private family therapy practice in Bozeman. In 2001, Norene moved to the California Bay Area to be closer to family and helped to manage the family restaurant.
