Before joining Global Education Oregon in 2016 Cori studied Geography and Spanish as an undergraduate at the University of Oregon. It was her course work and wonderful faculty at the UO that inspired her to pursue intercultural education opportunities doing spotted dolphin research in Costa Rica, interning on an environmental education farm in Spain and teaching English in Argentina. These experiences motivated Cori to complete her graduate program at Portland State University in Educational Leadership & Policy with a focus on service-learning and intercultural education. Cori loves speaking Spanish, and thinks one of the most fun (and delicious!) ways to learn a language is through cooking classes.
