Ep. 2: Courtney Mark on Motherhood, Family, and Sense of Self


This week, I am so excited to introduce you to my friend, former co-worker, and first podcast guest: Courtney Mark. She is a fun, outgoing bookworm mom who loves spending time with her family and geeking out over comic books, superhero movies, and all things Disney. What I love about Courtney is her disarming personality and her ability to make everyone feel cared for and appreciated. (I'm sure you'll sense this too!)

We shared a lot of laughs in today's episode, and I really hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did. Courtney gives her two cents on the X-Men comics, motherhood, and how to maintain your sense of self. She is funny, real, and honest and I'm so happy to present you with a glimpse into the mind of Courtney Mark.
