Courtney Hunt grew up in Charleston, SC but has lived all around the country. After receiving her Master's degree in Art History from Hunter College (New York) in 2013, Courtney found herself working in a public library in Chattanooga, TN. Determined to integrate her loves of Art History and the public service libraries provide, she has now returned to school to pursue a Master's degree in Information Science at the University of Tennessee School of Information Sciences. 

Courtney currently works at the Northern Virginia Community College Loudoun Campus library, where she has also taught Art Appreciation as an adjunct instructor. Her long-term goals include securing a position in an academic research library as a subject specialist, where she can continue to instruct students and assist students and faculty in their research needs.
