As one of our talented design assistants, Cortney realized she might be onto something when she designed her family’s home and won the design award for People’s Choice in the Utah Parade of Homes 2012. Growing up with all brothers, she never knew she could go to school to study interior design and didn’t know it could be a career until that time.
Since she won the award, she’s participated in several more Parade of Homes. Cortney enjoys helping clients with their design, finishes, and styling of their homes.
Cortney graduated with a degree in communications from the University of Utah.
