Hi! I’m Courtney and I just moved to Alaska in May of 2019 from North Carolina. My husband and I, along with our two dogs, will be here for the next four years until the army decides to send us somewhere else. We are very excited to be here and to explore all the beautiful places Alaska has to offer. Before coming here, I worked at a hospital rehabilitation center as a nursing assistant where I aided patients in their therapies following an accident or injury. Coming to Alaska, I decided to take a step back from the hospital setting and I found FOCUS. The work that our organization does with families with special needs has inspired me so much and is so fulfilling. I have loved the balance between “patient” interaction and administration. I am now getting ready to enroll into school to receive my Bachelors in Health Administration and am excited to see where that takes me!
