Prior to that, Courtney worked for McKinley Inc. in Ann Arbor, where she coordinated acquisitions and construction, created management agreements for all commercial properties and wrote financial pro-forma. In nearby Bloomfield Hills, as a paralegal for the Michigan law firm of Monaghan Leprete, she assisted attorneys in eminent domain and other real estate issues, analyzed appraisals, conducted research and helped draft court documents.
