Courtney joined G&S Nursery as an Account Executive in May of 2020 and serves our customer base in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area. A native of Indiana, she was raised on a farm on the outskirts of Valparaiso. Her father is a fifth-generation farmer, growing corn and soybeans and raising cattle and pigs. Courtney said her family has always been involved with agriculture and she remembers wanting to help on the farm and in the garden growing up.
She decided to follow her passion for agriculture and attended Purdue University where she received a BS in Agricultural Communications and minored in Horticulture. After college, she worked in the marketing field with a large agricultural company. She and her husband, Aidan, recently moved to South Carolina and her goal is to make herself as available as possible to her customers. Courtney said she wants to bring the same level of care she saw growing up on her family’s farm to her customers in South Carolina. She remembers service trucks and sales representatives at their farm coming to help with anything needed and staying for dinner – they were more like family than employees. She said this is the kind of relationship she hopes to build with people.
In her spare time, Courtney will take any chance to be outdoors and loves kayaking, reading and cooking. She and her husband were high school sweethearts and are excited to start a new chapter together in the Myrtle Beach area. We are thrilled to have Courtney on the G&S team!
