Kori is a lifelong learner, technologist, and writer. From corporate consulting in DC to building and investing in technology startups in Silicon Valley, mental health and journeys inward weren’t a priority for many years. A disciplined soul with an incessant craving for progress, she found consciousness-expanding practices at a time when softening and reframing narratives were especially needed. The improved well-being and self-discoveries she experienced with this work inspired a mission to help others find the same. This brought her to Field Trip, where Kori is now Head of Product leading Field Trip’s digital strategy to scaling psychedelic therapies globally.

I was super hard on myself, just like extremely high standards. I called it my productivity shamer. If I wasn't doing something that was productive, then you know, I would lambaste myself. I couldn't watch movies or TV. I had to watch a documentary. I couldn't read fiction, I had to read non-fiction.I couldn't listen to audible. I had to listen to a podcast. Just that voice in my head all the time. And so it got it kind of weaved into everything in my life.
And I don't think I was really able to get there until psychedelics, my ketamine experiences specifically. You're completely pulled in, detached from this dream we call reality and you're almost looking down on it. And it just gave me access to this new, mental space of higher level awareness.
I just care so much about living my best life, really, and helping other people do that. And that's what I see psychedelics doing. That's why I care so much, talking about it. Self-actualization, we actually don't know what that looks like. I think that our truth lies super deep and psychedelics can help us understand what our truth is and then actualize it.
There's nothing more alive than feeling, and it's just so beautiful, even if it's sadness. I don't know. I think that I've always just been obsessed with being tough and I'm just used to that. Feeling just feels so liberating to me
