CREATING SOLUTIONS ONE STORY, PROCESS, AND SYSTEM AT A TIME.
Courtney is an experienced storyteller, educator, and solution-finder. With over a decade of cross-sector work with local and national environmental nonprofits, higher education, and startups – she thrives when collaborating, writing, connecting, and organizing chaos.
For the last several years, she has enjoyed telling the stories of notable locals through the Boardman Review and Traverse Bay Lifestyle Magazine, among other publications.
In tandem, she works with various regional entities, including supporting Rotary Charities’ learning experiences and communications and managing the people and finance side of Loop Software Testing. She’s most at home with a new challenge and, as a result, has instructed public speaking, directed educational programs for CMU, organized the safety teams for Swim for the Bay, managed grants and programs for Inland Seas, served on several boards, including Bike Leelanau and the strategic planning committee for GO REC and more. Her unique portfolio of experience allows her to draw inspiration and solutions across industries and sectors traditionally siloed.
Courtney holds degrees in graphic design and environmental education and is midway through another in training and development. She’s passionate about accessibility to recreation, human-centered business practices, and leveraging technology to build regional capacity.
