Courtney has been volunteering for SPAN since 2012, starting out as a Crisis Line volunteer and then joining the Domestic Abuse Response Team (DART). She goes to school at CU Boulder, majoring in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology and minoring in Biochemistry and Math. If that’s not enough, Courtney also volunteers her time with other programs such as Real Choices Pregnancy Center; she is also working hard to get into graduate school. Courtney is a great volunteer and this spotlight is well deserved for all the amazing work she does at SPAN. Whether it is shoveling snow or showing compassion to our clients, Courtney does the work with a great attitude and efficiency.
