I don’t just talk about sustainable living, I live it: hydrogen production complements, solar panels, gravity water system, I raise chickens for fresh eggs in my own backyard, and grow the food and herbs I use at mealtime. I want my children to have the benefits of the self-sufficiency I learned as a child. With these turbulent times, skills such as these will be crucial in the future, as well as something we can do to build family unity.
Father and Husband
Dr. Courtney is a Father above all else, blessed with 4 amazing children. Max is 20, an a pre-law student; Echo, 16, is the most valuable football player on his team; Zahiya, 2, goes to ballet class with her father; and little Unani is almost 4 months old. His wife, Kristen, is also his business partner, and they see patients together so the family can be together every day. Kristen is his campaign manager and treasurer, and they have never been apart for more than 4 days. With all the time I spend on the road I am grateful to have my family with me. Family is what it’s all about they motivate me, support me, and give me peace.
