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, as well as with corporate entities including 501(c)(3) nonprofits, industrial development corporations, and "Type A" and "Type B" development corporations to finance large capital projects. While at Fulbright, she met Ike, Misty and Melissa and worked with them for almost two years on a large development project involving a first-of-its-kind financing in Texas. Corey has significant experience with traditional infrastructure financings, but her practice focuses on economic development transactions for residential, commercial, and mixed-use developments involving tax increment reinvestment zones, public improvement districts, "Type A" and "Type B" development corporations, venue projects, and hotel/convention center projects.

Corey graduated cum laude from SMU Dedman School of Law in 2008 as a Sarah T. Hughes scholar and member of the Order of the Barristers. Prior to law school, Corey was an ER/Trauma nurse who trained at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, and she maintains a current Texas R.N. license for volunteer purposes. 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 is currently serving her second-term on the Board of Trustees for her older children's school and her fourth year as the Chair of the Board of Directors for Café Momentum (, an 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 as well as post-internship support. Corey enjoys traveling with her husband Phil and their four children.
