Corey Eide

Alumnus, MS, American Red Cross
Corey Eide

In December 2014, Corey completed his MS in International Development at Payson focusing on urban disaster management. Corey holds a Bachelors degree in Communications and Global Studies from California Baptist University.

Corey has worked with the American Red Cross since 2006, starting out in his native Los Angeles but has recently joined National Headquarters as the Director of Recovery Services. In this role he is responsible for leading program development of the Recovery Services program and serves on FEMA’s Recovery Support Function Leadership Group.

Corey was the subject of a Paysonite Profile in the April 21, 2014 edition of the Payson Center eNewsletter, The Monitor.

Primary Classification: 
Knowing that I would at some point transition to an internationally-focused role at the American Red Cross, I applied to Payson. Payson was my preferred option since its distance learning format provided the flexibility needed with a demanding career as well as a strong foundation in international development theory which I considered necessary if one wants to understand the dynamics of disasters in developing countries. Almost every course I have taken has direct applicability to my work. Establishing a better grasp of economic theory has enabled me to better understand the effects of disasters on those living in poverty domestically or internationally. Honing statistical knowledge and research has benefited me greatly since moving to our headquarters in Washington DC where my responsibilities are more policy in nature.
