Courtney Hendrix

Special Events


The majority of Courtney’s professional life has been in event marketing. She started her career at Universal Studios Florida. She also worked for the Atlanta Knights, the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games and Zoo Atlanta.

Courtney enjoys bringing the vision of a special event to life for people. She has learned that passion is the key to successful events. Using her passion and evoking passion in others are her goals for every event.

Remaining active and involved in her community, Courtney also serves in several capacities at Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. Pius X High School. She hosts a tennis round robin as an athletics fundraiser, acts as a Parent Ambassador and is the chair of school blood drives. She also volunteers at LifeLine Animal Project and Skyland United Food Bank. Courtney has previously served on school boards and her local swim/tennis club board.


Serving as a Special Pops board member is a perfect fit for both Courtney’s passion and experience. As a board member, she embraces the mission of Special Pops and is grateful for the opportunity to support the Athletes and their families. For her, it is pure joy to combine her love of tennis (a self-professed addict) while making new friends.

One of Courtney’s favorite mottos is “Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.” While she has a strong competitive nature, experiencing team camaraderie is very fulfilling for her, too. She knows we all have something to learn from each other and welcomes the chance to create lasting relationships with our Athletes and volunteers alike.
