Why I love Hope
Courtney loves Hope because it changed her life as a student and continues to do so as an employee. She believes Hope develops you and challenges you to grow in all aspects of life--academically, athletically, socially and spiritually.
She loves everything with anchors or the colors blue and orange and is enthusiastic about the college’s athletics.
Outside the college
Courtney’s favorite place is the beach. She loves spending time with her family and her dog Rosie, named after Chicago Bulls star, Derrick Rose. Her weakness is anything with peanut butter.
