Thank you for taking this opportunity to get to know me.
My name is Courtney, and I am a creative digital marketing strategist with big dreams and even bigger goals.
If you were to ask me where I'm "from," I couldn't give you a clear (or short) answer; however, it's likely that we've lived in the same place before, perhaps even at the same time.
I've moved 10 times, each being to a new city in a different state. While this perpetual relocation strikes fearing the hearts of many, I consider myself lucky to have met countless incredible people and shared unforgettable experiences.
The resiliency I was forced to develop has become an essential part of me and I wouldn't be the person I am today without my unique past.
In May of 2017, I obtained my Bachelor's of Business Administration from the University of South Carolina with majors in Finance and Marketing and a minor in French Language.
It should come as no surprise that the next logical step for me was to pick up and move across the country to Phoenix, Arizona to embark upon my journey as a young professional businesswoman. In my mind saw my future in a high-rise office wearing my favorite stilettos with a briefcase in hand.
...Nobody told me that it wouldn't be quite so glamorous.
In my first year "adulting," I launched my very first blog reviewing books, NOVEL THOUGHTS, as a creative outlet from a dull 9 to 5 job. Little did I know that blog would give me my first opportunity to hone my digital marketing skills and enter into this ever-evolving industry I love so much.
I know this all seems to make sense in hindsight, but I promise it didn't always feel like it would.
My greatest strength has always been feeling a need to do better, and having the drive to actually get there. Better at school, better at work, better overall... I don't think I'll ever be satisfied.
That said, I'm far from perfect and I know it's important to celebrate all of life's victories. On my blog I'll be detailing all the musings of a twenty-something career gal with her sights set on greatness (and obviously a ton of book recs too!).
So whatever your reason is for visiting my site, welcome. I invite you to join me on this journey to do better and achieve more than I could've ever believed to be possible.
