Courtney is our newest Slow Food intern! Originally from Atlanta, GA, she is a recent graduate from Georgia College & State University with a Bachelors of Science in Community Health. Courtney was initially introduced to Slow Food on a study abroad trip in Italy and was immediately inspired by its values. Her favorite hobbies include traveling, running, finding & trying new Pinterest recipes, exploring the outdoors, and discovering the Denver restaurant scene as a self-proclaimed foodie.

Courtney is passionate about healthy eating and food sustainability and will be working on many exciting projects with Slow Food Denver and Slow Food USA this summer. Some of her projects include working with the new Slow Food Farmers Market at The Source, coordinating school garden corporate clean-up days with schools and companies, and teaching taste education as well as cooking classes at schools around the Denver area.
