Hi, my name is Cordell “Cory” Smith and I’ve been a peer advocate for Far Northern Regional Center for nearly 11 years! I’m probably best known for my workshop of Clean Hands and Teeth, and for being a contributing writer and editor for Watch Out! I also am getting to be well known for my art. About a year ago I started my own business painting pet portraits! I’m also a member of Mains’l celebrating 10 years, and a part of the ARC of Butte County of Chico where I will be celebrating 20 years in December. I also take part in a self advocacy group known as People First. I’ve been part of my local Chico chapter over 10 years.
