As an award-winning journalist, Cori has travelled around the world telling stories for a wide-variety of international newspapers, magazines, TV and radio networks. From the slums of Rio de Janeiro, to the plight of First Nations foster kids in British Columbia, to the Academy Awards in Los Angeles, Cori has written everything from hard news and feature stories to personal essays and memoirs.

Her writing style has educated and entertained readers through thousands of stories. Versatile and creative, Cori has been published in major publications including the New York Times, Huffington Post, Maclean’s, Chatelaine, Reader’s Digest, Conde Nast Traveler and The Independent, among others. She was a staff reporter for The National Post and spent many years as a producer and reporter for CBC Television and Radio in both Washington, DC and Vancouver. She has lived in Costa Rica and in Chile as a foreign correspondent. And she has published a best-selling anthology Between Interruptions: Thirty Women Tell the Truth about Motherhood, which to this day continues to connect and inspire mothers.

When Cori’s not organizing writing retreats, she’s writing for entrepreneurs, businesses and publications on stories that capture her imagination.
