Her most recent feature work, Hard Way Home, gave her the opportunity to turn the camera on herself as she attempted to thru-hike 2,000 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. The film takes on surprising meaning about the values of human connection and the power of letting go as Kori engages in a process of overcoming the aftermath of a difficult relationship. Hard Way Home premiered at the Virginia Film Festival in 2013 to a sold-out crowd and went on to win the Best Feature award at the Chattanooga Film Festival.

Her previous documentary works include: Where There is a Will, a feature about a Massachusetts family struggling with the emotional and financial results of their son’s traumatic brain injury and Off-Season, a short portrait of an elder woman taking care of the cows on a Haverhill, MA farm. Kori has also worked as cinematographer on numerous narrative shorts that have screened at film festivals across the United States.

In the past year, Kori worked as Assistant Editor to the award-winning documentary filmmaker Ross McElwee, joined the prestigious Non-Fiction Cartel in Boston, MA and began a documentary feature collaboration with Allen Moore, a long time cinematographer to the acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns. Kori earned a B.A. in Film and Media Arts from the University of Tampa and an M.F.A in Media Art at Emerson College.
