With nearly a decade of experience in the education industry and as a lifelong learner herself, Courtney knows what it takes to craft effective and engaging instructional content.
Since childhood, writing has been Courtney’s creative outlet of choice. She studied English and Creative Writing at the College of New Jersey and later earned a graduate degree in Critical and Creative Thinking from UMass Boston. Before coming onboard at automätik, she worked as an editor and developed an unmatched eye for detail along with a superpower for making complex concepts easy to understand. Her love of language combined with her strong grasp of content design and strategy make Courtney a perfect fit for automätik’s Creative team.
If she isn’t working, you will probably find Courtney learning something new from a podcast while exploring fun things to do in her local area, spending time by the beach, or planning her next travel adventure.
