Grant’s notes on Courtney:
I met Courtney when I was in the mergers & acquisitions world when she was acting as the operations director for our firm. I was impressed with her ability to essentially run the infrastructure of the company while simultaneously spearheading the marketing efforts with surprising ease. Courtney is a brilliant mind with tremendous work ethic and was my first and only choice to be my right hand at Proof. Her attention to detail is so remarkable that I don’t think she knows how to make a mistake.
Traditionally educated as a molecular biologist, Courtney’s acute attention to detail proved highly valuable as she built a mergers and acquisitions firm from the ground up as the Operations Director. This experience not only gave her a comprehensive understanding of the financial and operational functions of a complex organization, but also her responsibilities to manage the sales and marketing activities contributed to her thorough grasp of how all departments impact the brand and bottom line of a company.
Courtney currently is the volunteer chairperson for the KC Golf Classic where she oversees 500 volunteers for Kansas City’s largest golf event in Kansas City. She was the former lead organizer at 1 Million Cups, a Kauffman entrepreneurship organization that allows entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase their business and collaborate with other entrepreneurs and business leaders in the community.

Courtney enjoys traveling, playing kickball, volleyball, soccer, and listening to live music.
