Courtney Vitch grew up in Tucson, and after a brief stop in San Diego, settled in Phoenix to raise her daughter (3 years old). Her mantras are “Dream Bigger” and “Anything is possible”, which are applied daily to her life as a single mom, working part-time, and attending school full time. Courtney loves hanging out with friends and family, running, laughing, being outside, and curling up on the couch with her daughter and kittens at the end of a long day.
