Courtney is our only Florida native hailing from Sarasota, FL. She spent her childhood on and around small boats so it is unsurprising that she ended up as a deckhand. Courtney has a Bachelor of Science in Biology degree with a minor in Interdisciplinary Science. She started an internship as a junior tax analyst in Sarasota but her love of the ocean took her in a different direction. She started out detailing boats with the Gulf Coast Boat Detailing Company and then she knew that her destiny lay in the nautical industry. She is currently working towards getting her sea time so that she can be a captain someday soon. Courtney is most excited about the opportunities that yachting can present as well as the many different types of personalities that she will encounter. Her favorite places to cruise are the Caribbean and the Exumas in the Bahamas. Courtney is also a lover of the outdoors so you can find her snowboarding, wake boarding, rock climbing and traveling to new countries. She hopes one day to be able to incorporate marine biology into her yachting career.
