Courtney was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. Ever since she was a little girl she had a passion for animals and drove her parents crazy by trying to take home every animal that she saw. She currently is working on applying for a veterinary technology degree at TMCC. Even though her four legged children, for now, only consists of two dogs (Remi and Paisley), a cat (Tarzan), and a rabbit (Hamilton). She hopes to one day have the opportunity to provide a home to as many rescue animals as she can. In her free time she enjoys anything outdoors, archery, arts and crafts, reading and spending time with the amazing people in her life.
