Born in Minneapolis, Shor's family moved to Italy, then to Detroit when she was a child. Until she finished high school, Shor spent alternating years in Italy and the United States. She attended the University of Michigan, where she received a BFA in Theatre and a BA in English. It was while attending college that she first became interested in acting, appearing in school plays as well as at fellow-actor Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theatre.
