Inspired by GV’s mission to incorporate global experiential learning, sound environmental practices and social justice to inspire active leadership in youth, she is excited to be serving as Assistant Program Manager.
Courtney felt an immediate connection to GV because she took part in an immersion trip of her own in Costa Rica at the age of 17. By experiencing a vibrant culture far removed from the cornfields of Iowa, she was able to garner core values such as living simply and sustainably. Since, she has been abroad several times, most recently spending fall of 2010 in Tanzania and Europe.
In her spare time, Courtney enjoys ultimate frisbee, hiking, camping, and hugging trees.
Courtney holds a BA in Environmental Studies and Political Science from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Freshly transplanted to Seattle from Washington, DC, Courtney is thrilled to be joining the GV team.
