My name is Kortni. I have been blessed with two gifts of life, two liver transplants, one from my best friend and sister, Kelly and another from a selfless donor. I love being outside, natural health care, wakeboarding, photography, camping, reading a good Francine Rivers book and an expensive, fancy dinner in the city. Jesus is my best friend and He has blessed me immeasurably!
I grew up on a secluded mountain top that was an astronomical observatory. Because of this, I went to a one-room school house (think little house on the prairie) and legally got my license at the age of 14 to drive an hour down our windy mountain road to high school. I am a certified raw food chef, though I love meat (balance in everything is the key!) and went to Bethel School of Ministry in Redding, CA. I am currently in school to get my nursing degree. Some of my nicknames are positive patty, doodle and dr. jungle (because of my natural health knowledge…)
I have two sisters and one brother as well as two nieces and two nephews (seriously adorable munchkins)! I have such an amazing, caring family, they truly are the best. I also have some pretty amazing friends!!
Kelly, my liver giver… she is my best friend and my polar opposite. She is loud, sarcastic and funny and has an amazing heart (duh, she is gave me half her liver… that is about as good as it gets in the sisterly love department haha).
One day I hope to be able to meet my donors family so I can tell them thank you as well! And maybe learn about who he was!
