One of Corey's favorite questions to ask is "If you could wake up tomorrow and the 'better world' was here, what would it look like?"

"I was motivated to contribute on the weekends because I would ask myself, "Would Corey work on the weekend?" and I knew the answer was yes and it meant this was a cause I should believe in too."

Taylor, UX Designer

"Corey really listens when you speak and knows how to help you come to a solution on whatever challenge you have, he has like telepathy or something."

Sakshi, Bus Dev Coord
