Ann-Marie Coore’s Bio
From: Ann-Marie Coore, MS, MA, CHES
I have been an International Public Health Specialist for over 20 years. Through my work and travels I became curious about why the “self” was often ignored. I learned that many women didn’t have the tools, education, finances, self-esteem, courage, or support to improve their circumstances. Despite the many obstacles these women faced, I was hopeful that with the right intervention, true and meaningful change could come.
In 1999, I started the Coore Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, to work globally with youth (10-25 years old) in low-income communities on sexual and reproductive health, literacy, and crime prevention. To date, we have trained over 10,000 youth in 23 countries. In 2012, we rebranded the organization and created a subsidiary GIRLS RIGHT OF WAY (GROW). To build on this empowerment foundation, I founded I AM A QUINTESSENTIAL WOMAN in 2016 to help women overcome their circumstances and realize their life goals.
In 2019, I was inspired by GOD to start a publishing company “GOD Rocks, Inc.” To date we have published my book of poetry “YES” and a daily affirmation book &. journal “Daily Letters To GOD – An Intimate Moment.” In light of the aforementioned, I was inspired to write and publish 14 children’s books.
