Written By: Bonnie West, Office Manager at Digital Operative
Introducing our new Director of Development, Courtney! She will be leading our development team from our Denver, CO office and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her join our team. Courtney comes to Digital Operative with a wealth of knowledge and experience of those twice her age! Previous to DO, Courtney has been a part of agency life for many years, landing her first role during her FIRST semester of college (#goals). She has held many positions along her professional journey such as lead developer, technical project manager, solutions architect and our favorite, Director of Development. Oh, and did we mention she has been working in Magento since 2011!?
Outside of the office Courtney enjoys doing pretty much anything with her adorable family: her fiancé and fur babies! During the warmer months, you can find Courtney kayaking, hiking and attending music festivals. In the colder months, it may be hard to locate her out of the office and she tends to stay inside. If she isn’t curled up with her loved ones she spends her time traveling as much as possible, enjoying every adventure along the way.
Welcome to the DO Crew Courtney, we are lucky to have you!
