My name is Courtney Erin Guidy. I am a 22-year-old from a small suburb outside of Birmingham, AL called Pinson. I always knew I wanted to go to Auburn, not because everyone in my family went there like most people from Alabama, but because I fell in love with the campus and have always been a huge Auburn football fan.
I was raised by a West Point graduate who is now a retired Colonel, so needless to say, I grew up under strict guidance. My father’s leadership laid a foundation in not only my time at Auburn but one that will continue to develop in my career path after graduation. I owe my passion, creativity, curiosity and determination to my mom. Being from Germany, she has also embellished in me a love for travel, which has inspired my plans post-graduation, to be an au pair in Germany.
I’m an extrovert, who loves a good social scene, meeting new people and traveling to new places. I’m enthusiastic about friends, family, dogs, food and The Office. In my free time, you can find me watching the Kick Six (because war eagle), catching up on the latest kid stars of The Ellen DeGeneres Show or hanging out with friends. These are just a few of the things that make me, me.
My dad first introduced me to public relations because he knew I had a passion for communication. Once I explored the possibilities of public relations and found that I could combine that with my passion for sports, I knew this was the right career path for me. In the future, I hope to combine public relations, sports and marketing in my career.
