Courtney recently completed her after degree in Secondary Education at the University of Alberta. She previously graduated from MacEwan University with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English and minoring in Anthropology. Born with a weird talent to remember almost every detail about every film she has seen, Courtney would one day like to use her powers for good to encourage her future students to love film as much as she does. While it may not be important to point out, Courtney is related to Brittney...who also shares a similar affliction with remembering details about Pop-Culture. When she isn't training to be the most awesome teacher in the world, she is watching re-runs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, smothering her dog Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Northern armies (yes, that is his real name), and thinking of ways to expand her knowledge of Pop-Culture via Tumblr and Livejournal's "OhNoTheyDidn't."
