Cori is a graphic designer, former account manager, and pizza addict, based in NYC. Cori has a BA in Creative Advertising from the Syracuse University S.I. Newhouse School. After graduating, she spent two years at DigitasLBi working on the American Express Small Business Saturday account, where she gained experience managing client relationships and liaising with creative teams.
