Cori received a dual degree in Philosophy and Hispanic Studies from Pepperdine University. She stumbled into climbing as an undergraduate, amidst the buzzing climbing community in southern California. Her love for outdoor recreation goes hand in hand with the call she feels we all have to protect and care for our natural spaces. Her skills (of course, outside of sending epic climbs) include speaking Spanish fluently and cooking tofu. She is a KC local and when she’s not running on the Trolley Trail with her dad and sister she can be found in her backyard attempting to grow vegetables or reading Aristotle.
