Courtney came to Seattle from Tennessee by way of a few years of graduate school in Oregon. She enjoys skiing in the Cascades in the winter and hiking in them anytime else, in addition to kayaking on Lake Washington with binoculars to birdwatch. When Seattle’s rainy weather outweighs her desire to be outdoors, she reads science fiction and writes a blog about the geology of her summer hikes.
