Client ServiceCora Bonsor
Cora moved from Reno, Nevada to Colorado eleven years ago. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Colorado State University. In 2006 she began working with a Denver animal shelter and then joined the Firehouse team in 2009. In late fall of 2010, Cora decided to accept a job offer in another industry, but didn't want to leave the Park Hill staff entirely, so she still works with them once a month. Cora has two shelter rescue cats; Buttons, born in 1992 who loves to sit on laps and cuddle, and RoboCop, born in 2008, a playful troublemaker that likes to fetch, eat, and pick on Buttons. In her free time, Cora enjoys hanging out with friends and family, hiking and enjoying all of what Colorado has to offer.
