A perpetual truth seeker, Courtney is always asking questions and looking to pull back the curtain.
While you’ll find Courtney on the front lines of breaking news, she also enjoys long-form investigative work and heart warming profiles. Most notably in 2019, through a series of public records requests, Courtney revealed how an off-duty sheriff’s detective used his seniority and experience to evade arrest after a night of drinking resulted in a serious car crash. In 2017, her reporting on a law breaking bail bondsman resulted in the state revoking his license.
When she’s not working, Courtney is passionate about giving back to the Twin Cities community through volunteering. She serves on the board of amputee non-profit Wiggle Your Toes, and makes frequent hospital visits to new amputees. When time allows it, she loves to speak to Twin Cities school children and share her story of resilience and give them tools for adapting to change.
Courtney grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is a graduate of the University of Arizona. She also holds a Masters of Mass Communication from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University.
