Community Outreach Specialist & Recruitment
(253) 305-1099, courtneya@tacomaparks.com

Courtney graduated from University of Washington in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Communications. Utilizing her degree, Courtney began a career as a Community Outreach Coordinator before being promoted to an Oganization Development/Human Resources Recruiter in 2019.

Metro Parks Tacoma has always been a part of her life and she loves working for an organization that means so much to her. When Courtney is not working as the district’s Outreach and Recruitment Specialist, she enjoys spending time with her children, working on DIY projects with her husband, enjoying Pacific Northwest outdoor activities, and cheering on her daughter’s basketball team!

Courtney says, “Metro Parks is a great supportive organization. We say we care about our community and we TRULY do! We value our staff and their efforts. It’s been a life changing experience and I honestly do not know where I would be without Metro Parks Tacoma. My experience here has been amazing to say the least and I can’t wait to see my kids grow within the organization as well!”
