Programs & Technical Specialist
After attending the Planting Hope Gala, Corey was hooked on Plant With Purpose. He immediately began serving as a volunteer in San Diego, then decided to take his commitment to a whole new level when he became the Monitoring and Evaluation intern in the Spring of 2014, and then on to join the team as Programs and Technical Assistant.
Corey is a San Diego native and graduated from San Francisco State with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies and Geography. Corey provides full support to the programs and technical teams helping to achieve the smooth implementation of program activities, tracking and reporting of program deliverables, research, and development of innovations to better serve farmers and local partners. His role is critical in providing quality program data, GIS mapping, and development of new technologies to improve services to farm communities.
Corey is enthusiastic about the outdoors and spends much of his time rock climbing throughout California's national parks with his wife, Katie.
