Courtney is the Music Director at Union Congregational United Church of Christ in Green Bay, and she maintains a private voice studio.  She appears often as a clinician and guest speaker in northeast Wisconsin, and is consulted regularly for her expertise in applying classical vocal technique to contemporary musical theatre repertoire.  In her spare time, Courtney enjoys bicycling, reading, and cooking.
