Courtney began her career in IT in the mid 90’s and quickly realized the need for someone to figure out what needed to be done before the actual work started. She began pursuing the education and experience needed to achieve her PMP credential which she obtained in 2009. Being a consumer of PPM software and having an entrepreneurial approach to establishing PMOs, Courtney has implemented process and tools for over 15 years. She loves her role leading up the Consulting Services organization at Planview and is responsible for global delivery of Planview’s Innotas and Projectplace products. Courtney has served her PM community by providing pro bono education for aspiring PMPs as well as serving as Chapter President and speaking for other Chapters across the US. She offers mentoring to women in business, IT and project management, both inside her organization as well as on LinkedIn. In her personal time, she enjoys a variety of activities including racing cars and making music. She has a beautiful family with 2 teenage daughters that continue to teach her that life itself is a project! True to its definition, “Project Life” has a finite beginning and end and produces a unique product and result.
