“If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, you don’t ask what seat. You just get on.”
– Sheryl Sandberg
As Marketing Manager, Courtney’s goal for Leapley Construction is to assist in stewarding and expanding the brand through public relations, marketing, digital and social media, and proposal generation. Managing the day-to-day marketing activities and the longer-term initiatives involves working closely with everyone in the company, managing outside resources, and navigating the industry media landscape.
Courtney has been in the construction industry for eight years. She is a member of CoreNet Atlanta Chapter and sits on the Communications Committee as well as serves on Commercial Real Estate Women of Atlanta (CREW) in the Communications Committee and as acting Vice Chair of the annual publication, CREW in Review. She served on the board of Design Equilibrium magazine, an American Institute of Architects of Atlanta (AIA) publication, and previously served on the committee of the AIA’s Wednesday Night Drafting Club.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Magazine Journalism and a History minor from the University of Georgia.
When she isn’t making decisions about fonts and layouts, she spends her time doing yoga, running, and reading. She is involved with the Children’s Tumor Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by neurofibromatosis, a cause dear to her heart.
A few things most people don’t know about Courtney:
If I had to choose a soundtrack for my career, it would be…
A Disney montage. When I’m running around on deadlines, it sounds like the war scenes in Mulan. When I am networking, it’s dancing scenes from Cinderella. Sitting at my computer, it’s Fantasia.
The books that have helped me the most in business are…
Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg
Social Media Overload! By Corey Perlman
I can roll my tongue.
The first thing I do every day is…
Hit the snooze button a couple of times.
The most unusual item in my desk drawer is…
A label maker next to my bucket of snack foods.
I have a thing for fonts. It’s weird.
