Currently, she is studying for her Bachelor's degree in Business Marketing.
Courtnie discovered her love for Make-up Artistry and Hair Styling at a young age. She found that by helping others feel confident, it helped boost her confidence too. She started Cosmetology school during her senior year of high school at the age of 17, the same age she started modeling as a creative outlet and a form of self-expression. After acquiring her Cosmetology license in May 2011, she started to build her portfolio with the help of local photographers she previously worked with as a model. Courtnie landed a position as a Professional Beauty Specialist at multiple places before landing a Freelance position at MAC Cosmetics. Shortly after, she decided to travel to Los Angeles to attend Make-Up Designory, her dream school, for the Fashion Artistry program, where she acquired her Professional Make-up Artistry Certificate.
Courtnie's career has consisted of many photo shoots, fashion shows, and various forms of publications such as online features, print magazines, calendars, advertisements, and more. Not only does she love to be behind the camera doing make-up and hair, but in front as a model. She is always looking for more opportunities to build her experience as an artist, as well as expanding her portfolio with creative shoots.
Her love for incorporating fashion, beauty, and art, grows every day, as well as her entrepreneurial spirit, and she truly has a passion for helping others feel great about themselves and bringing out their inner confidence, as well as being able to express her creativity and art with the world.
