About Me

Pure in He(art)…

Hi, I’m Courtney! So glad you stopped by, I can’t wait to get to know you! I love meeting new people, traveling to new places, and eating new desserts. I was born and raised in Blackfoot, Idaho. The “Potato Capital of the World.” Literally. I love my state so much, I will happily sing you my state’s song when asked.  #Idahome

Me-and-a-giant-potato

I was so lucky to learn piano and flute growing up, that I entered college on a flute scholarship.  But after a year, I decided to major in theatre and follow my not-so-secret passion. After rockin’ a mean renaissance recorder for three years at the Utah Shakespeare Festival while studying theatre at Southern Utah University, I graduated and started acting professionally.

But one has to have a day job while pursuing ones passion. Over the next several years I began to develop my teaching talents while teaching high school theatre across the great state of Utah. And one has to have a second job to make money when not teaching. So, I trained and tested to be an optician. I’m American Board of Opticianry (ABO) Certified. Still haven’t waited tables….unless you count that dinner theatre in Alaska….

Courtney Jensen in Arkansas

After living and working in Utah, New York, Alaska, Chicago, and now Arkansas, I’m excited to see who I meet next and where that will take me. I’m married (nine years, woot!), to an Equity Stage Manager, we have one cat and I just finished a “bucket list” goal of getting an MFA in Acting. I’ve learned so much about acting and theatre by teaching, working, serving in my community, and basically being a human that I feel so ready to pursue the next opportunity I’m given. Can’t wait to meet you! I’m already singing, “And here we have Idaho….”
