New contributor at The Valley Sentinel
My name is Courtney Rupertus and I am a professional writer who has recently moved to Valemount in pursuit of a serious lifestyle change.

Both my fiancé and I have always felt a strong pull towards living in the mountains, and now we’ve finally left our busy city life behind and achieved what we’ve always wanted – our dream home in the mountains.

Originally from the small town of Grimshaw, Alberta, I moved to Edmonton in 2009 to attend MacEwan University. Since completing my diploma in Professional Writing in 2011, I started my own business where I work alongside small businesses in Edmonton to maintain and maximize the effectiveness of their blogs and website content.

While I plan to maintain the same client work as I had in Edmonton, I’m incredibly excited to open a new chapter in my life, which will include becoming a contributor for The Valley Sentinel. 

Writing is something I have always been passionate about, whether it is writing for a newspaper, editing, web writing, or creative writing.

I also find time to spend with my fiancé and family, hike with my dogs, play in the garden, and practice yoga as well as eat, drink, and enjoy life.

I’m looking forward to getting to know my new community, and I especially look forward to meeting new contacts and friends!
