At some point before 2077, she married Nate and had a child, Shaun. She earned a law degree at Suffolk County School of Law and planned to get a job with her degree following Shaun's birth. On the morning of October 23rd, 2077, Nate is preparing to go to an event at the Veteran's hall in Concord. While getting ready, a Vault-Tec representative approaches the family and approves them for admittance into Vault 111.
Mere moments later, a news bulletin warns of an imminent nuclear attack, which forces Nate, Nora, and Shaun to rush to the vault prior to a nuclear bomb detonating nearby. After entering the vault, the family, along with all of the other admitted residents, are placed in cryo-sleep. If she was not chosen to be the player character, she will be executed by two mysterious figures, one of them being Kellogg, while attempting to stop them from kidnapping Shaun.
Even if she is not picked to be the player character, it is possible to edit her appearance before finalizing whether to play her or Nate.
If she is selected to be the Sole Survivor, when she goes near the USS Constitution and is approached by the lookout, the lookout will mention that according to their pre-War records, her profession is a lawyer.
Her profession is also mentioned in the holotape "Hi honey!", given by Codsworth after the protagonist exits the Vault.
Her diploma can be seen on the shelf at the right of the house's main door in 2077.
If a follower (excludingCurie, Dogmeat, Deacon, Ada and Strong) is taken to her body in Vault 111 they will each have a unique comment on it.
