Biography in Brief

An Orange County native, Courtney transferred to Chapman University from an out-of-state school in 2007. She graduated from Chapman University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and a minor in Spanish. As a student, Courtney was involved in Greek Life and service clubs. Courtney became interested in the higher education world through her time as a student worker in the Office of Admission, and that passion has now grown into a career. She was an admission counselor for 2 years before transitioning in to her role managing all the Communications, Events and Publications for the office. She loves to hang out with her wonderful husband and dog and absolutely loves going to the beach. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the continued success of Chapman University and is excited to continue her time as a Panther!

Courtney's favorite spot on campus

My favorite spot on campus is Memorial Lawn. It represents the beginnings of Chapman University, and it’s a great place to experience the sunshine that defines southern California. It is also a place where professors will take their students to conduct their classes and lots of other fun, on-campus activities take place.
