Courtney got the name The Reiki G from a colleague who was teasing her about her middle name one day. The name stuck as Courtney honed her skills as a Reiki Practitioner to become a Reiki Master and Teacher. 


The award-winning documentary Beauty Does Lie: The Untold Stories of Autoimmune Diseases  features seven women living with 5 different autoimmune diseases (Lupus, MS, Sjogrens Syndrome, Pernicious Anemia, Myasthenia Gravis). Courtney was inspired to produce Beauty Does Lie after being diagnosed with the autoimmune disease myasthenia gravis in 2001.


Courtney did her first TED Talk in 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. She is still beaming inside. Courtney was honored to be a part of TEDxPrincetonWomen: Rewriting the Future. It was a memorable and truly phenomenal experience.
