Courtney joined Davis & Harman LLP in 2011 as a part-time law clerk while receiving her JD from The George Washington University Law School. She became a full-time associate in 2013.

Before joining Davis & Harman, Courtney held several roles in the insurance and financial services industry. As a representative of Thrivent Financial, she worked with clients to create and implement retirement plans, and sold life, annuity, disability, and long-term care insurance products to address client protection needs. She also sold health insurance as a BlueCross BlueShield of Minnesota agent. From a corporate role, Courtney worked in insurance product management where she managed Thrivent’s compliance with changes brought by the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act to Medicare supplement insurance products and processes. She also held roles in new business development and web sales development, where much of her work focused on addressing the financial needs of the middle market.


During law school, Courtney gained experience with the legislative and administrative sides of the federal government through law clerk positions at the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (the HELP Committee), and with the Department of Transportation.

At Davis & Harman, Courtney enjoys combining her financial planning and corporate background with legislative and regulatory work on behalf of clients, and with helping clients manage through changes to federal law that impact their business.
