Growing up with a father in agronomy, Courtney is no stranger to the green industry. Summer breaks were spent helping to collect data at test plots and visiting nurseries and golf courses.

At Xylem Marketing, she combines her love of reading with her passion for writing to create marketing content, including blogs, press releases, and web copy.
