Courtney joined the Elevate team in 2017 with a passion for supporting organizations that work to create opportunities for vulnerable communities and for doing work that matters.
As a Senior Director, Courtney works with a broad range of direct service clients—including those in the education, health and human services, legal aid, and arts sectors. Courtney enjoys helping clients to build new grants programs from scratch, launch new programs or expand to new geographies, and develop internal systems and processes that enable organizations to cohesively work across departments to achieve their strategic goals.
Before joining Elevate, Courtney worked in development and communications for a DC-based youth development nonprofit where she led the grants program, writing both public and private grants to support academic, childhood nutrition, and civic engagement programming.
Courtney graduated from Colby College with a BA in Government and International Studies with a focus on Latin America. She discovered her interest in development and fundraising while working at the Colby Fund as an undergraduate.
In her spare time, Courtney enjoys traveling anywhere and everywhere, hiking and skiing, trying new recipes in the kitchen, and struggling through crossword puzzles.
