Hi, I’m Corinne. And I’m an Amateur.
Which makes me a lot like some of you, perhaps.
I grew up in Lilburn, GA with three younger siblings and a Jack Russell Terrier named Patches.
I was always on the back row for class photos and spent most days climbing trees and building forts with my brothers.
I was homeschooled for several years and worked at Chick-fil-A for seven.
One time I accidentally ran over an alligator with my mom’s minivan.
paid am repaying thousands of dollars for a piece of paper that says I attended the University of South Carolina for four years and didn’t fail/get kicked out before graduation.
During that time I loved on high school kids through a ministry called Young Life, planned weddings for a semester, and wondered what in the world I was supposed to do with my life after it all was over.
I worked as a camp counselor for a few summers, and picked up the nickname “Coco” somewhere along the way. Those summers sparked an affection for the outdoors and taking my coffee black.
After college I drove thousands of miles away from my comfort zone to live in Death Valley, CA as a volunteer with A Christian Ministry in the National Parks.
And then I moved to Glacier National Park, MT to manage a restaurant and hike through over 150 miles of the most beautiful acreage of the United States.
Right now I’m living in Colorado Springs, CO as my fiance, Brian, and I train to own a Chick-fil-A restaurant. We’re getting married in March!
I’m one of those people who sticks to the outskirts of a party, whose cocktail of choice is an Old Fashioned, and whose musical taste has been described as “gloomy.”
My aspirations are few and include: opening my own coffee shop, becoming a published author, and riding in a hot air balloon.
When Jordan asked me if I’d want to collaborate on this project, I initially thought to myself, “yeah, but I’m sure I won’t have much to add.” And then I realized it’s because I don’t have it all together that I’d have much to offer.
I’m ready and excited to navigate the questions of “what do I do with these dreams and goals?” and “what in the world am I supposed to do with my life?” with you.
Maybe we’ll figure it out together, maybe we’ll realize the answers don’t exist. Either way, thanks for joining us for Amateur Hour. I’m really glad you’re here.
Rooting for you,
