Courtney Williamson '05
March 9, 2017
In celebration of International Women's Day and the spirit of this year's theme "Be Bold for Change," SPSG welcomed alumna Courtney Williamson '05 to campus on March 9. Courtney received her Ph.D from Carnegie Mellon University, and during her time there and after, she worked to build biomedical equipment, and developed a back brace, the "Calibrace," that would improve the quality of life for Parkinson's patients. Courtney founded her company, AbiliLife, and has launched a career as CEO in the life science sector. Courtney has been bold and courageous in her efforts to make a difference for the millions suffering from the disease.
SPSG is so proud of Courtney's outstanding contributions and grateful she returned to share her experiences. Congratulations, Courtney!
