About Cortney

I started as a beat writer with W&M News in the summer of 2014 after realizing that, as a local reporter, my best stories were coming out of the university anyway. Before that, I was a journalist for almost a decade, covering primarily local politics, environmental issues and Forteana.

In my personal life, I’m a complete plant nerd. I co-chair the Williamsburg Native Plant Rescue Team, serve on the executive committee of the John Clayton Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society and am certified as a Virginia Master Naturalist.
