What is one word or phrase that describes this person as an RCB: Inspiring!

Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB: Courtney came to Coos County as an AmeriCorps VISTA for Waterfall Clinic, and quickly established herself as a key community engager, partner, and collaborator. When not doing her ‘day job’ as a Patient Navigator for Waterfall, Courtney served in a variety of roles including coordinating the South Coast Equity Coalition; steering committee membership for Coos Hispanic Allies and the South Coast Oregon Connects community website project; participating in the development of the Coos Community Health Improvement Plan; and probably a hundred other things I don’t know about.
