The Nomination

John nominated Courtney and said,

"I have worked with Courtney for almost 8 years now. About 2 years ago she took on the role of Operations Manager. (That means she handles just about EVERYTHING!) Client Event coordinator, HR, CRM expert, and coaching and business planning. Why am I nominating her? Over the last 2 years, our team has grown from 3 employees to 10, she was very involved in the hiring processes and all the on boarding and training. We built and moved into our new location. - She coordinate this entire endeavor: design, budget coordinating with builders and the move! It was all seamless! I could go on an on of all the "stuff" she does for our team and clients, but what makes her special. Her attitude- always positive! She brings IT - everyday. Her passion that she brings to her career (EVERYDAY) is truly inspiring! Also she is married to Ed, a busy engineer at Russel construction and a wonderful and active mother of two incredible young boys- How she accomplish all that she does--- is not short of amazing. I fully understand you are going to get many awarding nominations. As you think of my nomination please note how Courtney embodies the what strong women can do!
