Corinna Kneuer (born January 4, 1958), best known by her stage name Cory (or Corey) Everson, is an American female bodybuilding champion and actress. She won the Ms. Olympia contest six years in a row from 1984 to 1989. Corinna Kneuer was born in Racine, Wisconsin and attended high school in Deerfield, Illinois. She attended the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where she was a multi-sport standout (gymnastics, track & field and badminton). While attending the University of Wisconsin–Madison, she met Jeff Everson, a competitive bodybuilder who worked there as a strength coach. They married in 1982. While they were married, the Eversons built a successful mail-order clothing business called Sampson and Delilah. Everson, who adopted a Romanian child, is active with Nightlight Christian Adoptions, a charity that brings orphans from Russia and Belarus to the US to stay with families looking to adopt a child. Cory Everson began to train seriously as a bodybuilder after her graduation, and made rapid progress. In the early years, she and Jeff trained at Ernie's Gym on Sherman Avenue in Madison. Everson is unique in having never lost a Ms. Olympia contest.
