  1. Love > Work

    Dear Coro Family,

    Last month I was hiking in the Santa Barbara Mountains when I paused to sit and close my eyes for a few moments. As I sat in reflection, two domains of my life stood firmly at the forefront of my mind; my work at Coro and the love of my life. After 14 years of medical training Risha had been offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity far from Los Angeles. In the weeks that followed I sought wisdom and inquiry from friends, mentors, family and loved ones. Today it is with a heart full of joy and gratitude that I share with you that Risha and I have chosen to move together and start a new life in Minneapolis.

    With a hint of poetic irony, the Coro tools played a key role here in my choice of love over work. I enthusiastically carry my Coro training with me to Minnesota in a new role of proud alum, monthly donor, and our first Minneapolis-based Coro Ambassador!

    Thank you all for being a part of this journey and making Coro what it is today. I hope to have a chance to connect with you all in the coming months and stay connected for many months and years to come.

    Please continue to read below for a message from my dear friend and Chairman of the Coro Southern California Board, Bruce Corwin.

The City Impact Lab in Los Angeles brings together those working to make an impact — in government, in the arts, in neighborhoods, in non-profits, and in business — to share breakfast and jumpstart their effectiveness with tactics for success from impact-makers across the city.
