At 17, she was accepted to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she completed her BFA in Drama. Shortly after graduation, she made her Broadway debut in the original cast of THE WOMAN IN WHITE, understudying and performing the title role under the direction of Sir Trevor Nunn. In years to follow, Courtney began to establish herself as a leading lady in regional theatres across the country, before accepting a two-year contract with Disney Cruise Line as a principal vocalist.

In 2017, she made her debut with The Production Company in their acclaimed revival of Brigadoon, and returned the following year for their production of Oklahoma!. In 2016, she had the great honour of singing the role of Mary Turner in Of Thee I Sing at the Sydney Opera House.
