Courtney serves as an Optimization Associate at NextAfter and is passionate about helping nonprofits cultivate and effectively communicate their mission.
Courtney has always fought to help others. While in college, Courtney started a blog that created resources for fellow students who were struggling. The marketing skills she developed became a creative hobby while she completed her education in social work. After graduating, Courtney worked for a Texas government agency helping children in foster care. She went on to get her master’s degree, working on political campaigns and for a public policy organization that advocated for legislation to positively impact the lives of children.
After completing her MSW, Courtney worked for a nonprofit SaaS organization as a social media and digital marketing specialist, managing nine social media brand accounts, weekly email content marketing campaigns to 4 million users, and all paid social advertising campaigns.
When Courtney learned about NextAfter, she jumped at the opportunity to be able to combine both her knowledge in digital marketing with her passion as a social worker to help others.
Courtney has a bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of North Texas and a master’s degree in political social work from the University of Houston. In her spare time, Courtney enjoys cooking, baking, and any true crime documentary that comes across her path. She lives in Allen, TX with her cat, Bee.
