Hi, I'm Narendra Pleas



Narendra Pleas currently serves as a Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney in the City of Norfolk.  Prior to working in Norfolk, Narendra worked in the Suffolk Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office as a Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney, and as an Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney for Sussex County as well as the City of Emporia/Greensville County. 

Narendra received her Juris Doctor from Indiana University and her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Political Science from Agnes Scott College.  She is a graduate of Green Run High School in Virginia Beach and the Governor's School for the Arts in Norfolk.  


Narendra currently serves as a volunteer for the Western Tidewater Medical Reserve Corps as a medical volunteer.  Most recently, this involved preparedness for COVID-19 responses, including performing contact tracing to assist local endeavors to help curb the spread of COVID-19.  However, in the past, it has consisted of assisting the Western Tidewater MRC at events and volunteering at the Virginia Dental Association Foundation’s Mission of Mercy, which offered free dental care to those who could not otherwise afford dental care.


She and her nephew help donate their time supporting Westminster Presbyterian Church and Great Bridge Presbyterian Church host and support the homeless by serving meals, cleaning, and otherwise supporting the mission of assisting those who are homeless or housing insecure.  She has been a host mom and opened her home to students from Mali, Tanzania, China, Pakistan, and Bahrain, who attended Kings Fork High School and Nansemond Suffolk Academy.  She also served as an Area Representative for Youth for Understanding supporting Suffolk and Chesapeake families and their students.


Narendra is a certified Emergency Medical Technician - Advanced, having served as a volunteer for Greensville Volunteer Rescue Squad for 5 years.  She also served the rescue squad as a Board Member for one year and as Treasurer for two years. 


She also served on the board of the Family YMCA of Emporia-Greensville, serving as its co-chair for a term.  


She volunteered as Youth Group Leader for Thalia Trinity Presbyterian Church in Virginia Beach and as a Child Life Volunteer at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, IN, during law school, helping to brighten the day of sick hospitalized children.


Narendra believes that service to the community is important. In addition to seeking office as a public servant, she serves as a sort of Uber driver for her nephew; shuttling him to school, sports events, and art classes.
