Courtney says: “I am a published author who wrote two books in the last year. One is poetry and the other is a novel. I received a Bachelors degree in communications. I did video, audio, and had an internship at channel WHDH 7 news. However, I could not find a job in that field so I got into education and haven’t looked back. I believe it’s the one thing no one can take from you. I am an avid sports fan and am a sucker for comedy movies.”
