Courtney is a Long Island native who first came to LOL 9 years ago as a Parent when her oldest child was just three. Her work as a TV producer took her around the world and deepened her curiosity and passion for music, nature, dance and food. Her life-long love of dance culminated in competitive swing dancing where she found her most important partner, her husband, Chris. She is a Jazz and choir vocalist, accomplished cook, and ukulele player. After the birth of her first child, she became a birth and postpartum doula, work she continued until our founder, Sheldon Thompson, offered her a position here, and she has never looked back! Courtney loves being a part of the Love of Learning team and brings enthusiasm and joy to our community in everything she does.
