Born in a small town, it didn't take long before Courtney moved away to the big city to chase her creative dreams. After graduating from university with an English and Theatre degree, Courtney moved to Toronto and pursued a career in plus-size modeling, blogging, and writing. She now runs a plus-size Fashion&Beauty blog "The Glitter Thread" and has begun the #curvesreign movement over Instagram. Loving anything to do with beauty, Courtney continues to submerge herself into a world where she expresses herself through fashion and writing. She currently lives with her boyfriend and cat in Ottawa, ON, Canada.
