Courtney Krygier brings with her experience working with nonprofits focusing on homelessness, immigration, and education. After earning her bachelor’s degree summa cum laude in Nonprofit Leadership and Management from Arizona State University, she began work with Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development as a Housing Navigator for homeless and at-risk young adults. Courtney then traveled to Taiwan to teach English. Upon her return she began work with Southwest Key’s unaccompanied minors program, where she supervised and taught Spanish-speaking immigrant youth.
Most recently, Courtney traveled to South Korea for 8 months as an ESL teacher to teach children from 4-17 years old. In addition to learning about the foreign cultures of Asia while travelling, she has studied Spanish for a decade. After six years of musical participation in choirs and a capella groups, Courtney has a strong understanding of the importance of music in youth development. She looks forward to the opportunity to see the students of Rosie’s House grow and flourish.
