Kourtney McCoy has joined the News staff's advertising and graphic design team.

Editor's Note: Please help us welcome our newest staff member to the Fountain Valley News and to the community. Kourtney McCoy will be working in advertising and page design, and you may see her out and about at community events providing photo coverage for us.

My name is Kourtney McCoy. I am originally from South Carolina and just moved to Colorado in May. Before my move, I studied Visual Communications at the University of South Carolina and worked as a concert photographer at a music venue in Columbia, S.C.. While I was in school, my boyfriend and I decided we wanted to move here and a few months later my parents told me they were already moving here. After they arrived, they just kept telling us how awesome it was! So, when I graduated, we packed our stuff and drove for two days across the country.

When I saw that this newspaper was hiring a graphic designer, I immediately knew that I needed to be a part of the team. I love the small-town aspect of the newspaper because I grew up in a small town just like Fountain, except we only had one stoplight.

My strengths include layout, design and photography. Being able to use my skills to provide the community with news is a passion of mine. I look forward to enhancing the visual content of the newspaper.

Outside of work I like to spend time with my boyfriend and our cat, Lucy. We spend most of our time watching shows together or going on hikes during the weekends. If you have any suggestions on places to see in Colorado, I would love to hear them. I would also love any recommendations of amazing places to photograph.
