Cori has taught throughout her career, volunteering in classrooms throughout middle and high schools as a guest speaker on a variety of sexual health topics. She works tirelessly to create a culture of consent in her community.
Cori began volunteering in her husband's high school health classroom. Students would write their questions on a 3x5 index card, anonymously. The following day, she would attend class and answer every question, factually. There were no questions that were out-of-bounds. In time, she began to see a pattern, in that many of the same questions were asked repeatedly and consistently.
LET'S TALK was founded in 2015 after years of teaching sex education to young people and volunteering in classrooms. Cori recognized that ultimately, what kids want and need - is to have their questions answered in a factual and non-judgmental way.
Our school based programming was developed based upon the need to answer these "most frequently asked" questions.
To date, LET'S TALK has served over 10,000 students in the state of Kansas. We currently teach in over thirteen different public and private high schools. Most recently, we have developed a parent child class for fifth and sixth grade children that is designed to support healthy communication between children and their parents or guardians - about puberty, body image, and sexuality.
