Cori Gift Senior Group Support Facilitator
Cori Gift is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with a Masters in Social Work from UH Manoa and a Bachelors in Psychology and Sociology from UC Santa Barbara. Her personal goal is to make participants feel supported and connected as they implement the Ornish Program, and incorporate these changes into their daily lives. She believes Group Support will be an exciting way for participants to share their experiences and develop meaningful connections with others who are also committed to making positive lifestyle changes. Her only expectation is that participants "come as they are" with a willingness to be themselves, be open, and be accepting of themselves and others. Cori enjoys swimming, hiking, reading, meditating, spending time with others, and cooking satisfying vegetarian food for her family. With a clinical background in integrated health, Cori hopes to empower participants to make sustainable changes in their lives. As a Group Support Specialist, Cori will bring a spirit of warmth, empathy, enthusiasm, and joy to her work!
