"GoNoodle is dedicated to delivering impactful experiences for all children that empower them to be the strongest and best version of themselves.  Given this, it is so important to understand the challenges our kids face, and how they are affected by them.  Cortney delivered an outstanding educational experience that helped our entire organization to better understand the impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on the children we serve.  I would highly recommend her for any organization that is committed to best serving and enhancing the lives of kids."

"Cortney's story is real and powerful."
"Cortney's story is real and powerful. Her story provided our teachers with a live example of how important it is to not only understand how adverse childhood experiences can effect a child, but also to understand how each child deals with those experiences differently. 
The most powerful part of her story was how the life of this student, who had an ACE score of a 9, was changed one day due to a caring adult who took the time to really get to know her and provide her with guidance and direction. 
I highly recommend her program for both faculty/staff and students to further understand ACEs and resilience.

"Cortney was such a fantastic end to our Mental Health Awareness Week at Purdue University. She spoke about topics that really resonated with our audience of college students and was incredibly engaging. Everyone in the room walked away learning something new, from how to cope with stress to recognizing toxic cycles that start with ourselves. She brought so much energy and charisma and was such an amazing speaker!”"
