About Me

Hello, my name is Cori.

Thanks for checking out my blog! I love all things houseplants, DIYs, home decor, parenting, photography, and writing and I am so excited to be able to combine my passions into my own blog.

After graduating from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Honours in Sociology (with a minor in marketing) I started my career in advertising as a digital marketing specialist at a small digital marketing firm in my area. In particular, I specialized in PPC advertising like Google and Facebook/Instagram ads. I began writing for The Spruce in 2019 as a side hustle, where I mainly focused on houseplant care as I grew my own indoor jungle.

In 2022, after starting our family and welcoming our daughter into the world, I decided to take the leap into self-employment and dive head-first into one of my first passions – writing. Now, I contribute regularly to publications like Apartment Therapy, Better Homes & Gardens, The Spruce, The Kitchn, and more on a variety of topics from news to home decor to gardening.

This blog originally started as a houseplant-focused blog called Plant & Grow, and has now evolved into a personal blog that is focused on a variety of topics. I hope you find something valuable here, and either way, I thank you for joining along on my journey!
