Hi, I'm Courtney and I started this here community. But let me remind you, this isn't about me. Instead, our tribe is built by women like (and for) YOU.   

A little back story, for as long as I can remember, I struggled with drugs and alcohol, and I was VERY good at hiding it. I threw myself into every available activity; from athletics, to student government, to academics and even church. I volunteered and mentored, and excelled at most. I strived to cover up the shame I felt amidst the ongoing internal struggle to coexist here in this life. I felt stuck, lost, and often alone. I did everything I could to stay busy, mask the pain, and deny my truth. I enjoyed boozing and using and did it often in isolation, making sure the outside always looked perfect (or so I thought). I loved to escape, not deal, and towards the end, believed alcohol was the only one that truly understood and accepted me. Until one morning, my husband found me in bed (alone), drinking whiskey out of a coffee mug, in my pajamas. And a decision had to be made- was I to get clean, enjoy my life, my marriage, my future? I didn't know how to love myself, to give of myself, to BE myself. But I wanted that, more than anything. And so that's what I did, with the help of my superstar husband, who has always seen more in me than I ever could. I made a choice to show up here in this life.

I am now clean and sober, happily married, and a grateful mother to two daughters.  I advocate for Mental Health awareness and believe in the power of sharing our stories to heal. Part of that is creating this safe space for women to connect, share, and leave feeling more confident and elevated. Us women are powerful; and with the right {free} tools, I believe we can each do our part in really changing the world for the better. Sharing our unique gifts with each-other, (while collaborating instead of competing), begins the movement. It is then that we can begin to shed away layers that no longer serve us, "un-become" who we were never meant to be, and finally begin to step into our true ELEVATED selves.

I hope you will connect with our community and sign up to join our Academy. There you will find invites to our {free} online workshops + other resources to encourage, grow, and inspire you.

Perhaps our lives look different, but you and I are actually VERY much alike. You see, we are all struggling to show up each day; whether it be as career women, stay at home moms, or single ladies just searching to find our place in this world. Wherever you are, with whatever you are facing- I want you to know you are never alone in this messy life, the life I refer to as 'Mombo Jombo.' 

Welcome to our Sisterhood.
