Court-lookingLeftAfter graduating from Boston University, Courtney worked in editorial, production and sales for newspapers, radio, and magazines, including Ms. and Esquire. Love took her to Denmark, where eight years with U.N. agencies included the communication needs of IT implementations. Microsoft Business Solutions and their partners were her next employers before she moved into the security sector with Milestone Systems in 2003. She has researched and written more than 500 customer studies, educating the market in the benefits of using IP technology. Courtney is now based in Portland, Oregon, after a quarter of a century in Copenhagen where she learned to speak excellent Danish. She sometimes tries to habla español and parle français with international contacts, but finds laughter to be the best universal connector.
