The daughter of a flight attendant from Atlanta, GA, Courtney grew up traveling more than most.
However, it wasn’t until a 3 month study abroad voyage in college that she experienced firsthand the life changing effects of travel. Her love and passion for travel came alive during this adventure where she traveled to nine different countries, including China, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Brazil and Venezuela. Courtney was introduced to non-western countries, and her eyes were opened to a world of culture and experiences that created a strong thirst for adventure.
Since graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, Courtney has lived in New York City before returning back to Texas. In NYC, her appetite for cultural adventure continued to grow through a love of the city, particularly within the arts and food & drink. Courtney has also spent time across the globe wine tasting in Mendoza, Argentina and Northern California, backpacking in Western and Eastern Europe, safariing in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, honeymooning in Dubai and The Maldives, relaxing in The Bahamas, St. Barth’s and San Jose del Cabo and skiing Beaver Creak, Colorado, to name a few.
Courtney’s ideal trip is one that mixes leisure with adventure. She loves the amenities of the world’s great hotels, while also seeking out unique cultural experiences. She is eager to share her love for experiences through travel with others.
After a long drive from Terre Blanche, arriving to Villa Cora and being swept to their lovely garden restaurant by the pool for lunch. We were in the heart of Florence, but could have been miles away in the countryside. The ideal spot after a long day!
Get to know the family that owns the hotels. All of these properties are family owned and have a unique story behind them.
Next Dream Trip?
I’d like to take my family to the Marbella Club in the South of Spain.
Cannot travel without...
My husband and kids are my favorite travel companions!
