Kourtney's entrepreneurial spirit was apparent from a very early age. Being raised in a family of business owners, she began planning activities and events for the elderly as a pre-teen. Kourtney obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Social Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh. Throughout her professional development, event planning never left her radar. When friends or family members were in need of help, ideas, or creative inspiration, they often contacted Kourtney to plan the event. In the fall of 2005, Kourtney relocated to Shadyside where she currently resides. In the spring of 2009, Kourtney and Jessica combined their creative forces to build what is now Epic Event Planning by Jessica & Kourtney. Their friendship of over 20 years solidifies their business relationship and makes working enjoyable. In 2017 Kourtney graduated with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. Her next goal is to obtain her clinical license and council young adults with metal health issues in a private practice setting. When Kourtney is not planning events, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, shopping, and eating.
