Bonjour! Cory was born in Toronto, Canada, and moved to Chicago in 2005 for a Master’s degree. It was here that he met his future partner, and never left. Before serving in his current role as an Americorp’s YOUth serve member, he had run a children’s summer camp and worked as a paramedic. Blessed with two daughters, 6 and 9, Cory has a firm belief and understanding in the power and importance of after school programming. He looks forward to sharing his passion of working with children, and the idea that every child should have equal opportunity for the current and future selves. His hobbies include guitar playing, rock climbing and spending time with his family.
