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. 

Courtney is a former spokesperson for the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA). "AARDA is the only national nonprofit health organization dedicated to bringing focus to autoimmunity."

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.
