Cortney 

Hi, I’m Cortney! I am a full-time trainer and comedian! I am passionate about education and making people laugh.

Debbie

Hi, I’m Debbie! I am Cortney’s mother and her assistant. You can often find me helping out at her trainings; passing out papers, writing receipts, handing out candy, putting together and cleaning manakins, and pretty much anything else that comes up! I retired a couple years back from the Creighton Dental Clinic. Cortney and I are very close and I enjoy helping her out and meeting new faces at all the trainings. If you see me around at one of the trainings don’t hesitate to ask for help; I am a great listener and love to chat! See you soon!
