Formerly an athletic trainer for the Colorado Crush and Denver Broncos, Corey is also a Physician Assistant with a Masters in Medical Science from St. Francis University. For six years, he worked in urgent cares, family practices, and emergency rooms. However, he was seeing over 60 patients a day and realized traditional medicine had lost its bedside manners. Combining his medical practice with his Bachelors in Sports and Exercise Science from the University of Northern Colorado, Corey founded Trivida to spend more time with his patients so they could get faster, real results. When Corey isn’t meeting with clients one-on-one, he’s immersed in research and learning how he can better treat clients.
