Courtney Misener currently serves as the Director of Programs and Community Engagement at House of Hope, teaching a quarterly curriculum she developed that focuses on three major areas: addressing negative childhood patterns and belief systems, taking on hard conversations, and emotional health. She frequently teaches classes and workshops that provide opportunities for women to be themselves while learning how to reclaim their emotional lives.

She is also a professional speaker and writer. An advocate and student of emotional wellness, Courtney frequently leaves her audience with tools to help identify and tackle common pitfalls that lead to emotional unrest.

Courtney is an Iowan by marriage, transplanted from Tennessee. She serves as the family CFO, and head negotiator of three very spunky boys. In her spare time, she enjoys rapping, car karaoke, dancing in grocery store aisles and generally doing everything she can to embarrass her kids.
