Kori Robins

by Andrew Ware

Kori joins and talks about her journey in caring for herself and what it has meant at various points in her life and ministry. Now she uses her journey to help others as she looks to continue to gain education in clergy health, and how she can mentor clergy in their own wholistic self-care journeys.

Ordained elder in VA, serving in Chapel Hill, NC. I graduated from Duke Divinity in 2012, and for the last decade have served in higher ed at Duke and in churches in Durham and Chapel Hill. My health journey really began in 2011. I decided as I finished seminary, I wanted to make my physical health a priority. I managed to maintain a hundred pound weightloss for the last decade through better nutrition and activity (even through the birth of two kids). I also found myself passionate about helping clergy find rhythms of self-care that would contribute to well being for the whole self. That passion led me to work with the Clergy Health Institute through Pfeiffer University beginning in 2016. I am currently pursuing certification as a health coach, but I think health covers the whole person-mental, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and physical.
