Courtney graduated from Auburn University in 2005 with a BFA in graphic design. While in school she interned at both Turner Broadcasting and an ad agency in Atlanta, and worked as a student designer for Auburn’s College of Education. After graduation, she returned to the College of Education as a temp designer before returning to Atlanta. She spent eight years as the lead designer/creative director of a publishing company in Atlanta, designing the company’s print materials, as well as three nationally distributed magazines.

After getting married, she joined her husband in Chattanooga and was thrilled by the opportunity to return to the higher education setting as a graphic designer at UTC. Working alongside the art director, Courtney helps various departments and colleges on campus with their design needs, while keeping a consistent brand image. Such projects vary from postcards and invitations to posters, brochures, and social media graphics. When Courtney’s not designing, she and her husband love traveling, cheering on the Atlanta Braves, and being entertained by their two hilarious cats, Dolce and Bellini.
