Courtney E. Ackerman

Courtney E. Ackerman has lived in various places around the US, as well as spending a year in the UK as a child. These experiences spurred the development of a curiosity about people that never abated, and she indulged her interests by majoring in psychology with a focus on cognitive science and statistics. Courtney continued her love affair with learning through Claremont Graduate University in California, where she earned her master’s degree in Positive Organizational Psychology and Evaluation. Courtney is currently working as a researcher and growing her recently established freelancing business. She is especially interested in compassion, well-being at work, and survey development and analysis. She is a regular contributor to the popular website PositivePsychologyProgram.com. When she’s not working, she’s usually spending time with her dogs, reading a book, visiting a nearby winery, or playing video games with her husband.
