Courtney was born and raised right here in the beautiful Berkshires. She spent her childhood living in Hinsdale and Dalton, until she moved to Connecticut to attend Quinnipiac University after high school. Courtney graduated from Quinnipiac University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences. Throughout this time, she worked as an EMT at summer camp and volunteered at Yale New Haven's Children's Hospital. Courtney then went on to attend the Physician Assistant program at Quinnipiac University, where she received medical training in many specialities including: inpatient/outpatient pediatrics, NICU, adult medicine, OBGYN, surgery, behavioral medicine, and emergency medicine. While Courtney loved learning all aspects of medicine, it was very obvious during her time spent in the pediatric specialities that this was her true calling. She is so excited to begin her professional career and join the team here at East Elm Pediatrics!
Courtney likes to spend her free time enjoying the beautiful outdoors, especially hiking, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and playing soccer. On a rainy day, she also loves finding a good book to read.
