Cory is a human-impact community builder and plant medicine advocate who has spent the better part of the last 5 years building communities in the mental health and wellness space, including his work as the former Executive Director of the Canadian Psychedelic Association. Today, Cory works as Chief Storyteller for the Nikean foundation and is the founder of Dose Day, a group-matching peer support community for intentional microdosers designed to match like-minded interests with real-world mental health outcomes.
Cory has committed his career to a vision of the future where mental health and disease are viewed as holistic, collective experiences and the stigmatization of mental illness is replaced with compassion, transformation and community connection; a world where we all have the opportunity to reunite with our innate abilities to heal, overcome and actualize our full potential.
