Courtney Arnott Silverthorn
I, Courtney Arnott Silverthorn, have had a whirlwind winter—when it rains, it pours! Matt and I bought a house in Leesburg, VA, on 12/10/12, just a week before I started a new position at SAIC. I’m now the partnership alliance manager responsible for coordinating research partnerships and services with outside organizations. Less than a month later, I also became the regional coordinator of the Federal Laboratory Consortium’s Mid-Atlantic region and am responsible for coordinating education and training efforts amongst all the federal research laboratories in 5 states and DC. If that wasn’t enough, I am completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training on 3/13. Whew! I’ve heard how excited you all are for our 10-year reunion and I can’t wait to see as many of you as I can on 5/31/13.
