Courtney has an unmatched passion for user experience design work. Her positive attitude and joy for quality design was a tremendous asset to our team. With very little direction, Courtney took ownership of and led the UX design for one of our complex software products. That product and our team was lucky to have Courtney onboard. I hope to work with her again someday.
I had the pleasure of being Courtney's manager as she transitioned in the user experience design industry. Her design thinking, strong collaborative and organizational skills, and focus on accessible design made her an immediate contributor that everyone enjoyed working with. When I think of Courtney, I think of the phrase, "A rising tide lifts all ships." I look forward to when we can work together again.
Courtney was my direct report at McGraw-Hill Education in the Interactive Solutions and Development department. Shortly after joining our group Courtney distinguished herself to the leadership team and was promoted to a Digital Interactive Designer role, giving her the responsibility of conceptualizing scalable interactive solutions for various K-12 educational programs. She was well respected amongst our team due to her forward-thinking ideas, cheerful demeanor, and creative prowess. Her solutions to design challenges were always clear, tactful, accessible, and fun. I knew that I could rely on her to independently execute at a high level for any challenges were thrown her way. Courtney’s a gifted and loyal designer who would be an asset to any organization to which she turns her focused attention.
Courtney is an amazing talent. In her current role as a Digital Interactive Designer, she works collaboratively with editorial, media, design, and digital strategy to create engaging interactive activities for students and teachers. Her design background and strong knowledge of different digital authoring tools allows her to create the best digital presentation of content for a variety of subjects. I have worked with Courtney on Math, Science, Social Studies, and Advanced Placement programs, and her work is outstanding. She is constantly thinking of the user experience and integrating instructional design best-practices into her work. Her positive attitude and strong work ethic endear her to her team and cross-functional partners.
Courtney’s professionalism and team-focused dedication goes hand-in-hand with her work ethics; of the highest caliber. From the start she has mentored me with passion, and has led us to success on multiple projects. Her friendliness and company pride make her a largely respected individual around the whole company, as well. It’s my honor to work side by side Courtney, on the most strenuous of projects, and to have the end results being of exceptional quality.
