Corey has held administrative positions in the traditional public schools, alternative schools, charter school, and charter school authorizing. His current work includes overseeing the Charter Schools Unit for Riverside County Office of Education in California. Corey earned his doctorate in Educational Leadership from the University of Redlands.

As a charter school parent, coupled with his experiences in both the traditional and charter school systems, Corey considers himself a “bridge builder” to the challenges and complexities of operating and authorizing charter schools.
