Growing up in Big Sandy, Longview, and Hallsville, Courtney is no stranger to East Texas. She joined the KLTV 7 news team in September of 2007 and is thrilled to be back home!
Courtney attended LeTourneau University in Longview and then received her Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA. She also received the University's "Outstanding Student in Broadcast Journalism Award" for her work producing, reporting, and anchoring the campus newscast.
Her senior year, Courtney interned at NBC 7/39 in San Diego and was hired after graduation, beginning her career as an Associate Producer. There she learned everything about the business behind the scenes, but it was her love of people and telling their stories that drew her to reporting and anchoring.
Courtney is an avid traveler. Some favorite places she has visited include Sicily, Italy and Hawaii. She also loves ballroom dancing, working-out, cooking, and spending time with her family, friends, and pets. Courtney has competed and been a division winner in Dancing with the Tyler Stars the past two years to benefit the Tyler AIDS Services.
She is always on the lookout to see how she can serve and help East Texans and would love to hear from you!
