 “Courtney was awesome. She engaged the class and used examples/language that the students could relate to. Her energy is great and I find that her style of presenting is very well received by the students. She specifically explained to the class why they should care about all of this and how it ties into their lives at school. It's clear how passionate she is about the topic!”
– School Counselor, Brookfield High School
