Learn how to...

Transform the pain of your past & affirm the life you want

It takes hard work, honesty and the assistance of friends and therapists—but it is worth it! If you want to be a mother—then let no one and nothing stand in your way.

Identify what you need to succeed and ask for help

Don’t be afraid to ask people to commit to support you in creating your dream of family. Trust me, what you are creating will benefit everyone involved. 

Learn to live in the messiness of not knowing and getting it wrong sometimes

Children teach you what’s really important—living in the moment and putting love first.

Courtney's Story

At age 11, Courtney’s life was nearly destroyed by a family tragedy. 


Struggling with PTSD and surrounded by an alcoholic family, she felt lost and alone. The pain was too great to face, so Courtney put her efforts into becoming an overachiever. 


Courtney began her career at Deloitte & Touche and then went on to enter politics. Courtney was a Regional Finance Director for Governor Ann Richard’s 1994 re-election campaign, Deputy Chief Financial Officer of the Democratic National Committee, Chief Financial Officer for the State of Illinois Department of Human Rights and is currently the elected City Auditor of Oakland, California. 


In this talk you will hear how it took many years for Courtney to shatter the limitations of her past and risk loving again. But finally, she found true happiness. On September 7, 2011, Courtney, as a single parent, adopted her boys at the ages of 2 and 3. Today, Courtney and her boys, ages 10 and 11 are thriving. 

Learn how you can be successful, single and a mom.

Courtney will share with you the steps she took to overcome the limitations of her past and go after what she really wanted — to be a leader, a public servant and a mother.
