At age 26, Courtney beat melanoma. But five years post-cancer, routine follow-up scans detected a malformation of the blood vessels in her brain that was close to causing a hemorrhage. The aneurysm, which had shown no symptoms, could have ruptured at any time. Courtney underwent a series of brain surgeries in 2011 to remove the malformation. Courtney's presentations are designed to help individuals and businesses adapt to change and crisis when the stakes are high.
Her work on Accelerated Resilience provides a strategy-based—not just attitude-based—way of overcoming life's challenges as quickly as possible. She is passionate about sharing her techniques for bouncing back, letting go of the plan, and getting clarity when life, love, or work throws you a curveball. Courtney is currently serving as the President of the Austin chapter of the National Speakers Association.
