When asked how she felt competing at the World Championships in Montreal, she said:  "There is nothing like competing in your own country. In a sport like synchronized swimming, it is easy to be fueled by the energy from the crowd. I have never seen so much Canadian support and excitement surrounding the pool and I think it motivated every athlete."  She is competing for the Stanford Synchronized swimming team. When not at the pool, she loves to snowboard, waterski and be at the beach. Courtenay loves to read, listen to music, hang out with friends and family and travel.
