Hi! I’m Courtney, the mentor in your head with a sweet spot for storytelling and helping millennials win in the workplace and at life.
After graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park with a degree in journalism, I, like most DMV natives, landed a comfortable job with the government to help me start on this crazy yet exciting journey of adulthood. After 365 days of freelancing on the side, applying to countless media jobs, feeling uninspired and itching for more in life, I left my “good government job” for my first editorial position in NY. While my journey thus far has been full of hard work, sweat, tears, prayer, and even rejection, I wouldn’t trade it in for the world. (Ok, well maybe the rejection part, but hey there is a lesson to be learned in every setback. )
I don’t promise to have all the answers for you, but I do promise to offer honest advice about what has and hasn’t worked for me. My hope is that the stories I share about my personal career/life, as well as tidbits from the awesome people I interview and meet will inspire someone to dream big, take risks and have faith.
