Cora grew up exploring the great outdoors. Camping at 6 months old and carrying her own pack when 4, she developed a profound respect for nature. With Park Ranger parents and fond memories of camping vacations throughout the National Park system, she is passionate about protecting wild places and prefers to be surrounded by mountains while watching the stars.
Although she’s spent most of her life moving around the country and the world, all her family comes from WNC and it’s the only place she considers home. She first worked at Headwaters in 2006, graduated from UNCA in 2010, and came back to Headwaters to take over the taproom in 2017.
When she’s not slinging beers, she’s exploring these mountains she calls home or traversing
across the globe, 23 countries and counting!
