Courtney is a multi-hyphenate artist born and raised in Virginia's capital city, Richmond.
As a young girl, she would use time after dinner for performing her Lena Horne-Inspired-Cabaret: "Dinner's with Coco," where special guests included her older brother (Jai), Mom (Birdie), and Dad (Calvin).
Courtney spent her formative years splitting time between playing in golf tournaments with
The First Tee of Greater Richmond and participating in programs with the non-profit School of The Performing Arts in the Richmond Community (SPARC). During her years with SPARC, she served as a performer, stage-manager, assistant director, and intern. This well-rounded experience fostered a lifelong love of the theater, community involvement, activism, and mentorship through the arts.
She is a graduate of James Madison University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Musical Theatre. She was also a member of the JMU Overtones Co-Ed A Cappella group.
Courtney graduated from the Yale School of Drama in 2018 and now divides her time between New York and Los Angeles.
