Courtney has nearly a decade of experience at the state and federal levels advocating for clients across industry segments such as health care, economic development, education and non-profit entities. Her inner politico and knowledge of the public and private sectors brings a well-rounded perspective to Moore’s client portfolio throughout the southeast and in the nation’s Capitol achieving advocacy influence and success on behalf of clients.
She came to Moore as an intern while pursuing her master’s degree in Applied American Politics and Policy at Florida State University and quickly demonstrated her potential. Years later, she is the point-person for many clients working to make their voices heard and to effect change at the local, state, and national levels.
Courtney has worked with clients including PhRMA, Lincoln Motor Company, Google, Shatterproof, and Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. Her strengths are understanding audiences’ priorities and motivations, sparking grassroots action, building relationships and maintaining an easy rapport with policymakers, advocacy groups, and the media.
The scope of Courtney’s work is impressive. On behalf of PhRMA, she leads the effort to manage and engage several state and national coalitions composed of more than 100 organizations to advocate for access to medicines and other related issues.
She recently spearheaded a public affairs campaign for Shatterproof, a nationally recognized organization focused on protecting loved ones from drug addiction, to bring together 25 like-minded organizations and grassroots individuals to expand access to the life-saving, overdose-reversal medication, Naloxone, to all first responders. The issue secured nearly 30 media placements with an overall estimated reach of 20 million and unanimously passed out of the Florida Legislature, going on to save thousands of lives.
Before joining Moore, she worked within the Executive Office of the Governor of the State of Florida. Her passion for advocacy bleeds into her commitment to community service, serving as Chairwoman of a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of breast cancer patients and is a member of the Junior League.
Courtney calls Tallahassee home, but she and her husband love to get away to the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina.
