Courtney is a passionate learner. For the past twenty years she has most directly engaged in this learning through her work in schools as a teacher, administrator, and consultant. These years of working with diverse students, teachers, and families taught her to be a team player, an agile thinker who can roll with the punches, and to foster cultures of growth - to help people believe they can do new and hard things. Courtney's specialties in her administrative roles were development, training, and coaching for teachers in all stages of their careers and creating curriculum that met the needs of all learners, through inclusivity, integration, and a social justice lens. At the root of all of Courtney's experience, is a passion for helping people uncover their untapped potential.
Drawing on her years in education, Courtney wears two hats at HLG. As instructional design manager, she helps design current, user-friendly, and dynamic content for our clients and ensures that our facilitators have what they need to deliver an extraordinary leadership development experience. As project manager, Courtney uses her active listening skills to build strong relationships based on collaboration, communication, and teamwork so our clients can concentrate on their work of creating workplaces where all people thrive. Courtney engages from a place of integrity, joy, and curiosity. She is a clear, open, and direct communicator who knows relationships are at the core of all we do.
After 20 years in working with people from ages 5-90, Courtney is keenly aware that there is no growth without meeting learners where they are at, gaining their feedback, and continuously improving. After the past two years in education, she also knows patience, adaptability, a bit of humor, long walks, and deep breaths also help a great deal.
