Who We Are
Principal & Lead Developer
Courtney has been developing websites for nonprofits since 2003. Her work in this area began when she moved from Atlanta to Amsterdam, began volunteering with ASCII, a free public Internet space, and became absorbed in learning about open source software and how it can be applied to the nonproﬁt sector. She began working with Tactical Technology Collective, was asked to partner with Marieke van Dijk and Auke Touwslager of Informationlab to build a new Drupal site for the organization, and the work of Floatleft began.
Previously, Courtney worked for IBM, implementing web sites for the IBM Intranet and Internet, and for a start-up web software company, WebTone technologies, as a Technical Analyst. Her interest in nonproﬁt technology services began back in 1995 when she started volunteering with the Georgia Justice Project, providing computer job skills training to their clients. She has a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Florida.
