Kristi Delorme – President
Kristi Delorme has worked as a Social Worker supporting Aboriginal children and families since 2008. She began her career working within the Aboriginal community after volunteering at the Urban Native Youth Association homework clubs in Vancouver in 2003. After being successful in her application to become the Program Coordinator with the First Nations School Success Program, Kristi moved into a Program Coordinator position for the Aboriginal Mentorship Program that connects First Nations youth with positive role models and mentors. Kristi was reminded each day of the negative affect colonization, residential schools and high child removal rates by the government had on the ongoing cycle of addiction, abuse and violence in the Aboriginal community. This experience motivated Kristi to return to university in 2006, where she obtained her second degree, a Bachelor Degree in Social Work, specializing in Aboriginal child welfare.
In 2008, Kristi began work with the Ministry of Children and Family Development in Burnaby, where she connects children and families to culturally appropriate support services.
Kristi has been volunteering with Beauty Night since 2003 and has served on the board since 2010.

Cory Thompson – Director at Large
Cory Thompson started with Beauty Night six years ago as a way “to do more”. He believes that behind every person is an amazing story. Having lived on the downtown eastside, he is aware of the suffering that happens, and wanted to make a difference. As a passionate Senior Educator for Dermalogica, Cory has had many opportunities to help women of all ages and cultures become successful in their own lives. For nine years, he has taught women practical skills in order to increase their business-savvy and advance their careers. Before working for Dermalogica, Cory worked for companies such as MAC and Aveda, but found a true home in esthetics, where skin care and human connection meet.
Twenty years of experience in changing people's lives continue to inspire Cory “to do more”. Every person has a story and every person has beauty inside. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity.
