A product of the small farming community of Oberlin, Louisiana, Korey brings nearly a decade of hands-on and on-the-ground political campaign consulting experience to the Baton Rouge Alliance for Students. In his time with the Baton Rouge-based The Political Firm, Korey took a leading role in bringing clients and campaigns into the digital age.
An 8th generation Louisianian, Korey’s passion for this state and its future runs deep. As the son of a schoolteacher and a product of the Louisiana public school system, he knows that the foundation for a strong and prosperous community begins with a second-to-none education. Korey believes each student, regardless of where they live or their socio-economic status, deserves the best educational opportunities we can possibly provide them.
Korey received his B.A. in Political Science from LSU in 2016. You’ll most likely find him cooking, enjoying the natural beauty Louisiana has to offer, or cheering on his beloved Tigers, Saints, and Braves in his free time.
