Corey began her legal career in the public finance section of Fulbright & Jaworski (now Norton Rose Fulbright) where she worked with governmental entities such as cities, counties, and state agencies, underwriters, trustees, as well as with corporate entities including 501(c)(3) nonprofits, industrial development corporations, "Type A" and "Type B" development corporations to finance large capital projects. She applies her prior experience working with issuers, underwriters, public entities, and the Public Finance Division of the Texas Attorney General’s Office to assist her current clients. Her practice focuses on large development projects involving economic development incentives between the private sector and municipalities, counties, or other governmental and quasi-governmental such as special districts, tax increment reinvestment zones, public improvement districts, "Type A" and "Type B" development corporations.

Corey graduated cum laude from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law where she was a Sarah T. Hughes Scholar and a member of the Order of the Barristers. In 2017, Corey was named to the inaugural SMU Dedman School of Law Emerging Leader Board. Prior to law school, Corey was an ER/Trauma nurse who trained at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Having grown up in North Texas, she has been active in a number of community initiatives and organizations, both on the volunteer and board leadership levels. She served two terms on the Board of Trustees for her older children's school, including as Chair of the Finance Committee, streamlining business operations and launching a successful capital campaign and new campus initiative. Most recently, she served five years as the Chair of the Board of Directors for Café Momentum (, a nationally-recognized, innovative nonprofit providing young people who have spent time in the Dallas County Juvenile Justice System with a one-year paid restaurant internship where they receive full-time case management, culinary skills and life-skills training as well as post-internship support. Café Momentum has shown incredible success in reducing the recidivism rate for the young people it serves and is a leading advocate for justice reform. Corey enjoys traveling with her husband Phil and their four children.
