Developing a career in theatre before she transferred to the screen, many of Norment's early roles were with companies such as Milwaukee Repertory Theatre and the Colony Theater in Los Angeles. She credited much of her success to her early work in Shakespeare, once citing her roles in the comedies "As You Like It" and "Much Ado About Nothing" as her breakthroughs: "A lot of people in the business either saw them or heard about them. I've been working steadily ever since."
