The actress, who joined the cast of the long-running soap back in September 2020, has quickly become a fan favorite for her dynamic and nuanced performances. Off-screen, the actress has been equally as impressive, using her platform to raise awareness about her struggles with mental and personal health, and encouraging others to take control of their life. You may not know this but Courtney has also opened up about her long battle with asthma. Let’s take a look at how she’s been able to turn her struggles into strength.

In a pin-up worthy post, Courtney got personal about her struggle with asthma, writing in the caption, “My hormones are kicking MY ass the last two weeks after getting off and having withdrawals from my asthma meds that TORTURED my body and nervous system for over the last two years.”
While it sounds like Courtney was having an absolute dreadful time, she remained positive adding, “LOVE YOURSELVES LADIES and GENTS! Regardless if you feel a hundred or not, own your power, own your worth, own your healing, own your body, own your desires to cleanse and empower yourself however that presents itself in your life, and own your capacity to love others through loving yourself (or sometimes loving yourself through fully accepting others love for you when times get tough)!
Fast forward to present day, Courtney’s relationship with herself is stronger than it’s ever been. She’s been killing it on screen and is living life to the fullest, traveling and connecting with nature. Having Y&R hunk Mark Grossman by her side in these adventures must definitely be the cherry on top!
Courtney’s story is a reminder that no matter what challenges we face in life, we can always come out stronger on the other side and fans can’t wait to see what she’ll do next.
