Courtney Turner | Account Manager II | University of Alabama

Return to IDR Alumni>>

How has your college experience influenced your career at IDR?

I literally wouldn’t have found IDR without Alabama’s sales program – after failing miserably at being an accounting major for 3 years, I switched into marketing & sales and one of the first roleplays I did at Alabama was an IDR prospecting roleplay. College taught me that working hard for the things you want ALWAYS pays off if you’re persistent and stick with it.

What is your favorite sports team?
Obviously, the Crimson Tide… We don’t have any pro teams in Alabama, but now that I’m in Dallas I’m a Cowboys fan

What is your favorite season?

Summer for sure.

If you could smell like one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Probably brownies in the oven, because everyone loves the smell of brownies.

Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it?
It’s not really hidden, but I do theatre stuff on the side! Still a pipedream to be a movie star, but I guess being an account manager is pretty cool, too.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

All the shows in The Bachelor franchise. Also, murder docs on Netflix.
