Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I'm Corey and I'm the director of Clark Splash. I am a senior studying psychology and education here at Clark. I went to MIT Splash when I was younger and was super excited to get involved with Clark Splash. Directing Splash (for my third year now) is definitely a lot of work, but it pays off when I get to meet all the eager students at each program. Outside of Splash, I am also the Director of Administration for Clark Emergency Medical Services and have volunteered at various youth programs in Worcester. During the summer, I work at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. In the little free time I have, I enjoy cooking, binge-watching Netflix, and playing with my dog.
