About the Author
From the time she was three years old, Corey’s highest aspiration was to be a mom. She would try to dream of other careers, but her dreams always brought her back to motherhood. That dream came true… twice! Motherhood is her greatest accomplishment. At the peak of her career, that dream was shattered when her daughter Aleisha was killed in a car accident at the age of seventeen. Devastated, disoriented, and stopped in her tracks as she navigated the “year of firsts,” Corey knew, in the back of her mind, that a new normal, a new focus for her life was necessary. But where to start? Drawing from her years as a life coach and her lifelong seeker’s heart, she stepped onto her yoga mat. And with each breath, with every gentle movement, she slowly found her inner illuminated path to joy.
More than twelve years later, Corey has helped dozens of women fuel the flame of their inner light and embark on their own journey to joy. She brings lessons from almost twenty years of life coaching, insights from her years of yoga practice, a variety of spiritual expressions, and a deep love of nature to her writing, her coaching, and her yoga teaching. She has an immense desire to infuse life with the happy, playful energy Aleisha embodied. She has been affectionately referred to as “Master Encourager” by her coaching clients and people around the globe often reach out to her saying, “I need my Corey-fix.”
Corey is a graduate of Coach U, Martha Beck Life Coach Training, and Cook Street Professional Cooking Program, and is an E-RYT Yoga instructor with over 2500 hours of teaching under her belt. She is grateful to live in Denver, Colorado, where she enjoys walking her canine kids, hiking, SUPing, and has been known to blow off work to go play in her kitchen.
