My name’s Courtney Salmon, no, not pronounced like the fish. Yea, try to wrap your mind around that one. I was born in Las Vegas, NV but raised in a small town about an hour away with an equally as strange name, Pahrump. I graduated from the University of Nevada Las Vegas with an English degree. I am a sports fanatic. Football is my favorite, and I one day hope to be a sports analyst. Go Pack Go! I am a dog lover and have four of them of my own. I tend to be the person at the party that plays with the dog rather than conversing with people. I am kind of a mix of all things nerdy. I love literature and poetry, Harry Potter, Star Wars and the occasional video game. Since coming to Idaho I have also found a love for hunting, fishing, hiking, camping and all things outdoors. I definitely came to the right place.
