Courtney earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Policy from Vanderbilt University that combined Geology and Public Policy. She recently completed a Master of Science degree in Geography at Oregon State University, where her thesis focused on evaluating groundwater flow through faulted aquifers using chemical and isotopic tracers. She is a Geologist-in-Training with 3 years of experience in groundwater sampling, stormwater compliance monitoring, geographic information system, mapping, technical writing, and Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. Courtney provides support for site investigation and remediation projects at Farallon.
Courtney came to Seattle from Tennessee by way of a few years of graduate school in Oregon, and she enjoys exploring parks and neighborhoods around the city. She learned to ski thanks to the Water Resources Club at Oregon State University, and she finds it to be a whole new way to appreciate the hydrology of the Pacific Northwest. When Seattle’s rainy weather outweighs her desire to be outdoors, she reads science fiction and works on expanding her five-chord guitar repertoire.
