Cortney graduated from Florida State University in May 2022 with a B.S. in Communication and Digital Media Studies. Cortney has grown up with a passion for sports and writing. Since she was young, she has dreamed of being a reporter.
During her time at FSU, she was a writer for the sports section of the FSView. She attended any FSU sporting event she could and saw some historical games and moments for the Seminoles. She says her favorite moment was welcoming the FSU Women’s Soccer game back after winning the National Championships in 2018 and 2021. While the football team was not the best when she was a student, she finally witnessed the ’Noles take down the Miami Hurricanes at her last home game. Along with sports, Cortney was very involved in community service at FSU. She was involved with Dance Marathon all four years and raised over $4,000 by the time she graduated.
