For Courtney, the art of flamenco encourages connection and communication and aligns with her ability to quickly assess a client’s situation and choreograph a tailored plan for change.

Courtney is a well-respected change leader with more than 15 years of experience in the retail and consumer products industries. Her passion for retail ignited with her first job, working in department stores with rotations in cosmetics, ladies, and her favorite…handbags & accessories. Early in her career—and intrigued by the fashion industry—Courtney launched a successful bespoke handbag line that provided her a very quick indoctrination into the end-to-end product development lifecycle including design, sourcing, distribution, and accounting. Her expertise in store operations and product development has helped her lead top retailers and fashion brands through business transformations and software implementations by tailoring change management plans to clients’ unique needs, and then managing execution of the plans. When she’s not leading change management efforts, Courtney shares her skills as a volunteer for a number of organizations, including free fab’rik; Habitat for Humanity; Young Professionals - High Museum of Art; Hands on Atlanta; Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO), as well as serving on the UGA MBA Advisory Board. Expanding her creativity beyond consulting and volunteering, Courtney enjoys flamenco dance, art & design…and being a wife and mom. Courtney holds an undergraduate degree in marketing with a minor in international business as well as an MBA from the University of Georgia (UGA). She has been published in several retail and fashion outlets, including CBNweekly, Luxury Daily, Retail Leader, and Shopify, and drives marketing efforts for Parker Avery.
