Diversity Program Coordinator
Courtney joined The Wildlife Society in September of 2011, moving from Oakland, Calif., back to the D.C. area where she grew up. She earned her bachelor's in environmental studies from Oberlin College in 2003, and an master's in environmental management from the University of San Francisco in 2008. Courtney has worked hands-on with domestic and wild animals as a veterinary technician and wildlife rehabilitator, and has also worked at the Conservation Corps to help at-risk young adults gain work skills in the conservation field. Now she is working for TWS to help the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provide scholarships for rising conservation professionals. In her free time, Courtney likes to hike, drive as far as she can on a tank of gas, and write fiction.
