Kory embarked on his journey with rescue in late 2002 with the Twin Falls County Search and Rescue in Idaho, thanks to the push from a good friend. This sparked a passion for rescue that continues to grow to this day. He began in technical rescue, and having a history in caving, the interest to learn technical rope rescue came naturally. As part of Twin Falls County Search and Rescue, Kory was a member of the High Angle Rescue team, Dive Team, and Ground Teams. He continued his career with a large mining company in Northern Nevada as part of an Underground Mine Rescue Team for three and a half years. With an expanding background in rescue, accompanied by his desire for excellence and continued growth, Kory took a role with another company in late 2012 as the Emergency Response Coordinator for Surface and Underground Mine Rescue where he’s remained to this day. In the summer of 2017, Kory began his pride and joy -- Battle Born Rescue. With his strong and diversified background in rescue that includes back country, industrial, and underground, Kory brings a great deal of knowledge and expertise to the playing field. As an instructor for Rescue 3, Kory specializes in Technical Rope Rescue, Confined Space Rescue, and Tower Rescue. In time, he is also looking to add Swiftwater Rescue.
