After graduating from Cape Henlopen High School, Cortney attended Wesley College in Dover, Delaware. She graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management, and secured a position with a large banking firm as a Fraud Analyst. Although she gained a great deal of experience in this position, she ultimately realized working for a large corporation was not for her. In September 2004, Cortney began her career at Harvard Business Services, Inc. as a Mail Center assistant. She assisted in the processing of Harvard's monthly client mailings as well as the daily sorting of both incoming and outgoing mail. Her friendly demeanor and positive attitude led to her transition to the Filings Department. She rapidly showed interest in expanding her expertise in all aspects of the department and currently assists with every aspect of the Filings Department, including both domestic and international formations, custom document orders and obtaining Federal Tax Identification Numbers. Her vast understanding of the state of Delaware's policies and her willingness to help make her a great asset to the Harvard Business Services, Inc. team.
