As a new VP working at a small institution I appreciate my membership in ICS. Courtney is always quick with a reply to simple questions and offers a consultation call for the questions that aren’t so quick and easy. Her advice is practical and applicable to our institution’s size and scope. She has helped me develop a training plan for onboarding new Title IX coordinators who are new to the work, creatively replacing our Code of Conduct policy and procedures that allow for input from our Deans and a number of other, “oh shoot, we need a policy on that?” type questions.
Carmen Barnhardt – Title IX Coordinator
Dr. Dee Dee Anderson, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs The University of Southern Mississippi
Courtney provides invaluable assistance with Title IX compliance, including real-time legal advice during complex investigations. Courtney understands the different roles that each division plays in the investigative process and works diligently with student affairs professionals to ensure that they understand not only their role in that process but also the legal requirements mandated by federal law
Deirdre Honner – Director of Employee Development and Safer Spaces Coordinator Calvin College
Courtney is so many things to us: subject matter expert, trusted partner, provides wise counsel regarding our policies, processes, and training. Best of all, she has gotten to know us and is delightful to work with!

Courtney is an experienced and effective legal counsel for any educational institution in need of training, planning and policy writing. For five years, she worked with me as in-house counsel for UTC. She was knowledgeable, hard-working and always devoted to protecting the University’s best interests.

As Chief of Police for campus law enforcement, I worked with Courtney through numerous legal issues over an 8 year period. She provided sound guidance during sensitive employment and compliance related matters that arose as well as assistance in policy drafting. I highly recommend her services.
