Courtney G

Courtney moved to Birmingham six years ago with the dream of becoming a nurse in the Neonatal ICU. She left behind her five wild brothers but brought along her high school sweetheart, David. David and Courtney got married after their freshman year at UAB at the ripe age of nineteen. They thrived on cans of soup while pursuing their education and working odd jobs. Courtney graduated and landed her dream job in the Neonatal ICU. One year later, her husband also graduated and began working as an Engineer. They now live in Trussville with their 16-month-old son, Noah. Courtney’s hobbies include eating (not to be confused with cooking), being outdoors, traveling with her family, and writing on her personal blog (amindfulmomblog.com). She is passionate about mission work and has been privileged to serve on trips to Tanzania, Costa Rica and Ecuador.
