My name is Kourtney. I’m a newsroom editor at Business Wire, previously an intern at Narrative Magazine and a cashier at Banana Republic. I enjoy being busy. I have a passion for hearing, reading, analyzing, and editing stories. Learning makes me want to learn more. I hold a secret affection for volcanoes. My church community is a great source of support for me. I play the oboe to relax, be expressive, and get warm. I believe that challenging experiences and constant growth are necessary for life. My oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are the best. Journalism has taught me that people matter most. If I can create something to aid, to enlighten, to inspire…I will have done my duty.
