About Us

Our Inspiration:

Founded in 2020 during a world-wide pandemic. These words from Sonya Renee Taylor inspired us: "We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate and lack. We should not long to return, my friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature."   We hope they inspire you too!!

About Our Company

About Our Founder:

Debbie Harrell has spent the past 25 years raising her children and trying to be a good human, volunteering in her community & separating her garbage. She is a life-long learner and loves investigating and analyzing; often to a fault. She is especially interested in the way people live, stories of resiliency and finding opportunities in the obstacles. She loves problem-solving and excels at looking at challenges from unique angles and different perspectives. When she found herself unemployed in early 2020 due to covid, she decided it was time to do something she has always wanted to do…start her own business. The middle of a world-wide pandemic is the perfect time, right?  It was obvious that there were huge shifts happening all around, and many people were feeling overwhelmed by all the uncertainty, so Debbie set out to find a way to help. She was fascinated by what the world was experiencing and was certain there was a way to take more of an active role in shaping what our future looked like. She founded the New World Normal as a way to help people who were feeling isolated and overwhelmed. New World Normal provides a soft space to explore and question our society's norms.
