Corey GuineeBoard Member
Corey has been involved professionally in the local wine industry since 2002. He is the co-owner and manager of Core Enology Analytical Services, an analytical lab specializing in wine analysis. In addition to the lab, Corey also reps for a French cooperage – a challenging task involving much barrel tasting in local cellars. Soon to be an empty-nester (fly delightful and talented birds!) Corey was looking for something to help fill that void and completed Basic Mediation Training in 2017. Since then he’s been an active YCM mediator, volunteering in school attendance, small claims, and family mediations. Can’t find Corey in the lab, in a barrel cellar, or in a mediation? There’s a good chance he’s either on a camping trip with his amazing wife, perusing art galleries with his daughters, or on an archaeology dig in Eastern Oregon.
Beth KareckiSecretary
Beth first learned about mediation in 1996 when she met YCM’s then executive director at a fundraiser. She was able to meet and talk with many of the volunteer mediators and Board members about mediation and the services offered at YCM. In early 1997, she completed the Basic Mediation Training course offered at George Fox University and immediately began mediating and joined the Board of Directors. Since then she has completed training in Juvenile Justice Victim/Offender, Small Claims, Family (Parent/Adolescent, Custody, Divorce, Parenting Plans, Truancy), and Elder Mediation. Beth is also a trained facilitator that has conducted hundreds of volunteer mediations and facilitations in Yamhill County. She also participates in providing training at the Juvenile Detention Center to help young offenders learn skills to help them find better ways to resolve their conflicts. Beth is a true believer in the mediation process, as she has personally witnessed how effective the results have been in resolving conflicts and improving relationships in families and the community.
