I was born in Manhattan and raised two hours north in a tiny town in the Catskills. I began my professional media career working as a radio show intern at the Sullivan County Community College, where I was completing my senior year of high school and majoring in Liberal Arts and Radio/TV broadcasting. I was on the President's and Dean's List. Next, I completed a dual-BA degree in English, Literature and Rhetoric and Political Science at Binghamton University (Harpur College), where I was a Presidential Scholar, Scripps-Howard Foundation Journalism Scholar and Commencement Speaker. During this time I worked at a residential assistant (RA), orientation admissions (OA) tour guide, teaching assistant (TA) in public opinion and public relations assistant at the Roberson Museum and Science Center for two semesters.
After receiving my BA, I moved to Washington, D.C. where I worked as a TV journalist covering The White House and Capitol Hill for The Newsfeed Network. During this time, I was also a Summer Scholar at the Institute on Political Journalism at Georgetown University, which included coursework in Media Ethics and Economics. This was both an exciting and difficult time in my life, for I discovered that I didn't enjoy reporting as much as I'd dreamed I would. Rather, I was more intrigued by a career in public relations. In that field, I'd still be close to the action (networking with reporters daily) and I'd be able to apply what I knew about newsrooms to my new career in PR. During this time I was honored to receive an "Outstanding Alumni Award in Community Service and Career Excellence" from my alma mater (Binghamton University's Harpur College).
Faculty at Binghamton also nominated me for a the prestigious "Henry Luce Foundation Scholarship," in which a nationwide search is conducted. Only a handful of alumni from around the nation are chosen to live and work in Asia for a year. I made the regional call-backs and prevailed in the final selection in New York City. Although I was thrilled to win, I decided to decline acceptance, as my father had just been diagnosed with incurable cancer.
In order to be close to home and spend time with my father during his illness, I moved back to New York's Finger Lakes Region where I attended graduate school at Cornell University. At Cornell, I was a fellow, researcher and graduate assistant in the Communications Department. My studies focused on strategic communications for non-profit organizations, communicating risk to the public and organizational communication. My master's thesis focused on health knowledge and was titled: "What Matters Most in Predicting Health Knowledge- Media Use, Group Participation, Socioeconomic Status or Race?"
During a life-altering moment in graduate school, while attending the World Perspectives Institute Conference in Agriculture, I decided to start a marketing, speaking and training firm, Courtney Consulting (www.consultcourtney.com), which I've managed since 1992.
Other work experience includes: providing program direction for an admissions program between TC3 and Cornell University; serving as an account executive for a strategic communications firm (research, marketing and advertising); media relations work for local, regional and national political campaigns; directing community relations (spokesperson) for the City of Binghamton in two different political administrations; directing media relations and serving as spokesperson for Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management; and client management for small businesses, corporations, members of the Fortune 500 and more.
Since 1990, I have delivered more than 1,500 speeches and training sessions to clients around the globe.
