Corey Giddings

University of Alaska Anchorage
2021 Students to Startups Intern: Elevated Oats
Corey Giddings has returned to academia as a consequence of losing a professional kitchen job to Covid. Years of life experience has made Corey a better student overall, and his first year back has netted him 34 credits with a 3.85 GPA. Unsure of what the summer had in store, he attended the UAA Career Fair and learned about Center ICE and the Students2Startups program. After an application and matchmaking process an internship started with Elevated Oats, a local granola manufacturer. Learning about the concept of a Triple Bottom Line approach to business has given him hope, and working for a startup that is living out the ideals without even realizing it has given him inspiration. He is now a salaried employee with Elevated Oats, as well as a full-time Electrical Engineering student and a Research Apprentice funded by the NASA Space Grant performing experimental research with battery thermal management systems.
