Her path has taken her from high-tech and insurance to public health and safety. The time she spent in the public health arena was most rewarding, as she dealt with a variety of issues including bioterrorism, cancer clusters, disease outbreaks, community health, and injury prevention. She enjoys freelance writing while taking care of her very active toddler and awaiting the birth of her second child. Courtney holds a degree in journalism from Arizona State University—and now wishes she’d minored in child psychology.
Courtney and her husband are enjoying their first home and blending their different approaches to home maintenance and organization. Courtney says, "One thing we agree on is that we want our home to reflect warmth and stability for our children. The best memories are of everyday things, like working a puzzle at the kitchen table or having a summer barbecue."
