Hi, I'm Courtney

I'm a multimedia journalist with experience as a writer, editor, radio reporter and project lead on long-term, digital-first projects. I’m currently studying social justice and investigate reporting as a graduate student at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. I return to my native Midwest after living in Atlanta, where I worked at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WABE, the city’s NPR station. I’ve told stories on a wide range of subjects, including gentrification in Atlanta; civil rights in Selma, Alabama; aging farmers in Wisconsin and a historic snowstorm in Washington, D.C. I have a passion for creating impactful and memorable content that enlightens and educates.
