I am a socially-driven entrepreneur, hybrid thinker and sustainability leader with almost 20 years working in the field. I have a Masters in Social Innovation for Sustainable Development and bring 15 years of experience as a practitioner living and leading in proximity with communities facing extreme environmental degradation and economic poverty in Central America.
I am the coFounder of a UNESCO award-winning organization – SERES – where I currently serve as a Board Member and Senior Advisor.
An internationally recognized facilitator, I have worked with communities and organizations in Africa, Australia, Europe, North America and Latin America, in a variety of settings.
I bring an engineer’s love for solving problems, a pioneering spirit and an entrepreneurial mindset to everything I do, along with a deep and unwavering commitment to justice and equality for people and the Planet.

“What I’m doing isn’t a job. I’m on a quest, and a quest that is deeply in alignment with my values. A quest in which who I am informs what I do.”
“I have had the privilege of working with Corrina and of seeing how she touched so many lives in rural Guatemala. When the eruption of Fuego Volcano wreaked havoc, she worked tirelessly to provide relief to her community. Corrina is a thoughtful leader who inspires me with her steadfast dedication and integrity.”
