Hi I'm Corey

"I am a Boy Professional, father of three, and I am a Mormon."

About Me

I am a Boy Scout professional for the Sioux Council Boy Scouts of America. I am in a middle management position with the council. I enjoy the scouting program because of its outdoor component and for the values and skills it teaches. Prior to working for the Boy Scouts, I was a Pheasant Hunting Guide in South Dakota. Prior to that, my family lived in Utah were I was a real estate professional and a Fishieries Lab Technician. I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelors degree in Fishery and Wildlife Management. While studying at Utah State, I had an exciting job working in a genetics laboratory, where we analyzed fish DNA. I enjoy animal biology and ecology and find them fascinating. My hobbies include hunting, fishing and other outdoor adventures. When I find the time, I enjoy training hunting dogs. Recently I have taken up Fencing. There is just something exciting and romantic about dueling with swords.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have studied, pondered, and prayed about the things that I have learned. I feel peace and an assurance when I pray about these things. This peace and feeling of assurance lets me know that the doctrines and principles I have studied are true. The other reason I am a Mormon, is because all of the principles and doctrines in the Mormon faith make sense. I do not believe that a loving God would want his children confused or leave so many questions unanswered.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day all day. In my business life, in my family life, in social life, and of course in my religous life. The Mormon faith is a way of life. I am involved in the Boy Scout program as a professional where I get the opportunity to help young men and their adult leaders learn and grow into active citizens and persons of good character. Because I have a son in the Cub Scout program, I also volunteer as his Den leader. This gives us an opportunity to interact and be a good influnce to his friends and others in our community. In the church I serve as an adult Sunday School teacher and serve on a regional committee for the young men's organization. This organization focuses on the spiritual growth of young men between the ages of 12 and 18.
