I’m Courtney Racquel Rhodes, a curious, creative and authentic soul journeying through my life committed to being happy, fulfilled and compassionate while living and sharing my truth. I’m the wife of an incredibly smart, charming and supportive husband, mother to a special unicorn attending Syracuse University and entrepreneur at CourtneyRRhodes.com and Urbanity Communications. On my better days, I’m a force to be reckoned with, and at my worst, I’m a hot mess. I was born with a blood disease that challenges me from time to time. I’m certainly not defined by it or the other adversities I’ve faced in my life, but it has a significant impact on how I view life and the mark I’m striving to make in the world. Actually, it’s quite the contrary; I feel my path is to an extent pre-destined for me, so that I, in all my curiosity about human nature, the intent and possibilities inherent in people, and my obsession with beautiful places and things, could unfold in its perfectly authentic way.
