Courtney was raised in Connecticut and moved to Missoula to attend University of Montana. She fell in love with a boy from Butte, and moved there in 2001. Courtney loves classic cocktails and the old school idea of an evening salon with friends and fiery conversation. In 2012 Courtney and her husband John opened Headframe Spirits where they distill whiskey, gin, vodka and bourbon cream liqueur. They also manufacture continuous flow distillation systems for the micro-distilling industry. Many of the drinks on the Headframe tasting menu are original Courtney cocktails. Courtney is a mother, a co-Montana Entrepreneur of the Year and everything in between.
