Courtney’s energy is amazing and it’s contagious! Through working with her I felt the confidence to step up my game, find comfort in the discomfort of being live, and shine on screen. I believe everyone needs Courtney on their team to help them stretch outside their comfort zone and take inspired action online.

About ME

i empower women entrepreneurs to look, sound, and most of all, feel good on video.

For nearly a decade, I’ve used the power of social media and video to build a successful personal brand online, and now I show women how to do the same. I’m a media coach, certified Sommelier and creator of Shine On Screen.

In 2013 I walked away from my blog and went into hiding.  The irony is, I had just landed on the cover of SEVEN magazine and was featured in popular wine publications like Food & Wine mag, the LA Times, local news stations and online media. Yet, the truth was, I was afraid of other people's judgements, and I questioned whether I was smart enough, pretty enough, or talented enough to be in the spotlight. The path led to years of depression, and self reflection.

During this time of solitude, I gave birth to a beautiful little boy named Kameron.  My son changed my life. One day while we were driving in the car, I listened to the lyrics of one of his favorite songs from the Disney movie, Cars:

"Behind the clouds, the sun is shining
Believe me even though you can't quite make it out
You may not see the silver lining
But there's a big blue sky waiting right behind the clouds"

I was living in Seattle at the time, so the song felt quite befitting. But, it also woke me up inside. Fear had taken the wheel in my life. I knew I had to make a major change in order to find happiness again. Not just for me, but also for him.

I hired a coach, and moved back to my hometown. I realized that I let fear stop me from becoming all that I could be and, with the help of my mentor, I transformed fear into excitement.  I also realized that I could help other women push past their own fears and grow their business online by overcoming their visibility issues, as I had.

Today, I'm a media coach and creator of Shine On Screen, that empowers women entrepreneurs to look and sound amazing on video. While there are many media coaches for you to choose from, I have the personal experience of what it's like to be in front of the camera, on the cover of magazines, and interviewed live. Not as a videographer, makeup artist, news anchor or journalist, but as a creative business woman who overcame the obstacles and learned how to build a successful personal brand online.

Over the last year I've had the honor of helping many women entrepreneurs build the confidence to be on video and attract their dream clients.  Together we've taken scary risks, learned to live with fear and built our businesses to the next level, side by side.

(And fear no longer has the wheel.  It now sits quietly in the back seat while I drive.)
