I would be honored to speak at your event and share about finding the beautiful in the different, the difficult and the unexpected.



Courtney Westlake is personable, charming, and confident.  The perspective on life Courtney provides through her honest and sincere speaking is one that engages the audience and keeps them thinking for days.  She was extremely well-prepared, flexible, a joy to work with, and overall a phenomenal speaker who’s message has no bounds.  Rarely is there a speaker with such talent that their message appeals to all demographics, but Courtney’s message is one that needs to be heard by everyone.” – Bailey Burns, Vice President of Programming for Panhellenic Council, University of Illinois
