As Foundation Relations Manager, Kori helps create and manage a successful foundation fundraising program alongside her colleagues on the Foundation Relations team. She manages foundation grants for the Northwest, Alaska, and Sun Coast Regional Offices along with our Veteran and Community engagement programs.

Kori joined NPCA in 2024 after 7 years with Central Oregon LandWatch, a regional environmental and land use watchdog organization based in Bend, Oregon where she currently lives. She lovingly wore many hats throughout her time at COLW, most recently as Operations and Grants Manager. She developed a successful grant program and built skills she will enjoy bringing to NPCA’s Foundation Relations Team.

Kori works toward environmental goals with optimism and joy in the abundance that Earth and our fellow humans have to offer us. She believes that National Parks represent the best of America when they preserve our majestic natural resources, honor the truth of the past, and when all people see themselves, their history, and their future represented in National Parks.

Kori holds a master’s degree in nonprofit management from Regis University and a B.A. in Sociology and Creative Writing from the University of Colorado, Boulder. In her spare time, she listens to podcasts, reads Dostoevsky, watches the Sopranos, roots for the Denver Nuggets, and loves Chihuahuas (and all other maligned little creatures of the world).
