Courtney grew up in her small hometown of Fairview, AB before making Calgary her permanent home in 2009. She completed the nationally

accredited Athletic Therapy Program at Mount Royal University and received her Bachelor's Degree in Kinesiology with Distinction from the University of Calgary. Courtney has been a Certified Athletic Therapist since June 2013.


Although Courtney's foundational certification is in Athletic Therapy, her passion has been CranioSacral Therapy (aka CST). She started her educational journey with the Upledger Institute in 2016 after finding that CST immensely helped her own post-concussion syndrome, neck pain and migraines. Since then she has treated many many clients for those same maladies and has also become an Upledger Teaching Assistant for the CranioSacral Therapy 1 & 2 techniques classes!


In November 2020, Courtney opened up her own private practice and provided mobile therapy in Calgary and area. Along side her own business, Courtney has been doing some exercise rehabilitation and CranioSacral Therapy for seniors in the Manor Villages with AIM Therapy since March 2021. After another darn concussion in April 2023, Courtney took a step back from mobile therapy and now provides the majority of care for her clients out of her cozy home space in Tuscany NW, in Calgary.


Prior to starting CVB Wellness Services, Courtney worked in the health and fitness industry for 7 years. During her time at the gym, she also found her passion for teaching! Courtney became an integral part of the continuing education faculty within the gym scene, writing and teaching three courses for the personal training staff: Movement Assessment, Intro to Special Populations and Medical Exercise and a three day intensive Post Rehabilitation course. When the timing is right, Courtney hopes to create a new series of courses for movement practitioners, manual therapists, and clients!


Outside of work, Courtney LOVES reading and learning. She enjoys both fiction and non-fiction books and learning as much as she possibly can (as a determined lifelong student). Whether she takes professional courses, self-educates or works with a mentor, expanding her knowledge and progressing her skillset to help people to an ever greater extent is the ultimate goal.


Her other favorite thing is coffee, although sadly it has been decaf coffee for the last year due to the concussion.
