Courtney graduated from UTPB with a Bachelors degree. Her best advising moments are when she helps students understand the process so they no longer feel scared or confused. Her favorite ice cream is Butter Pecan.

Best Advice “me, your instructors, the deans, etc. – we’re all people just like you with lives and issues and problems just like yours. Don’t be afraid to talk to any of us when you have a problem or a question. We can’t help if we don’t know there’s a problem.”
