From the time she was small, Corey challenged herself to face and release fear. Here is a shot from her iphone dated June 8, 2012, where she has a real live python wrapped around her.
Her friend Emily says it was taken at Sonny's Grill,
"at Petaluma Golf Center. That snake belongs to a local wild animal petting zoo of sorts. I threw that party when I used to cook there. It was an event that Corey came out to support because she's AWESOME. She was so unbelievably brave!! Grown men were scared to even get near it, and she was a regular snake charmer, relaxed, smiling away."
