Kourtney’s athletic career started at the age of two with gymnastics. She transitioned into the cheerleading world when she entered high school; cheering sidelines and competing on the varsity squad. She continued her passion by landing a spot on the varsity co-ed squad at Western Kentucky University, where she received her bachelor's degree in mathematics education. She was also very active in the community schools teaching tumbling, stunting, cheer fundamentals, and choreography. Kourtney moved to Colorado in 2013 taking a break from cheerleading and teaching to try other avenues. Now she is back to her roots working on the office side for Empire Athletics. She is excited to meet every athlete and share the joy of cheer!
