Board Member Feature: Cory McClintock
Tell us a little about yourself:
I grew up in Big Bear and lived in several states, coast to coast, following graduation from Big Bear High in 2002. I returned to Big Bear in 2015 to be closer to family and serve at Community Church. I have been married to my wife, Danielle, for 14 years and we have 2 children: Ellie, 8, and Conor, 3. I am a musician and currently the Worship Leader at Community Church and a Parent Educator and Data Analyst for the Mom and Dad Project. I have a Bachelors in Business from Warner Pacific University in Portland, Oregon.
Why did you choose to join the DOVES board?
I believe in the mission of DOVES and was honored to be asked to be a part of it. The service provided to the valley is important, necessary, and incredible and has positively impacted countless lives. As a parent educator I have the opportunity to work with families to create safe environments for their children, and as a board member at DOVES I have the ability to continue this work by supporting an outstanding organization.
What is your favorite part about working with the DOVES organization?
Honestly, I have much to learn from the other board members and am enjoying this opportunity for growth. But also, I enjoy hearing about all of the people that are having their lives changed by DOVES; knowing those stories that sometimes go untold and seeing the impact in our community that sometimes goes unseen. It is a good work that we do!
What do you do for fun?
I have a very active and involved daughter so we do a lot of coaching of sports teams and selling of Girl Scout cookies which is fun! In my free time, I also enjoy learning new music and learning to play new instruments. I also like puzzles.
