Atwater Village Resident Named ‘Woman of the Year’


Atwater Village – “I was completely shocked” Morris confesses. She later adds “It is humbling. I am very honored to be in the company of those other women”. 

Courtney Morris, a thirty-five year old woman who has lived in Atwater Village for the last twelve years, received Congressman Adam Schiff’s call a few days ago to find out some marvelous news: she was one out of fourteen ladies recognized for community involvement. 

Before receiving Congressman Adam Schiff’s call last week, Morris had been serving on the Atwater Village Neighborhood Council for four consecutive terms, and had also been Board Co-Chair for almost nine years. During her service, she has organized activities like the Atwater Village Car Show, the Equestrian District Open House, Movie Nights, Trick or Treat on the Boulevard and Summer Nights on the Boulevard. 

More Than a Politician 

Also an animal lover, Courtney rescues cats and dogs – she has fostered more than 50 animals while in Los Angeles – and serves the Neighborhood Council as the Animal Services Liaison. When she is not working in the community, she works at the Warner Bros. Discovery Talent Management Team.

A mother (of an 18-month-old daughter) and a wife herself, Courtney values Schiff’s efforts on behalf of women. “I am proud my district is home to so many incredible women – brilliant and hardworking individuals, many of them leaders in their fields, who go above and beyond to share their wisdom and passions with their neighbors, and to enrich our communities day in and day out,” said Schiff. 


Honorees Throughout Los Angeles 

The rest of the 2022 honorees are Mariam Barnes (La Crescenta), Lucy Levinsohn Berman (Sunland), Nancy Beyda (Hollywood Hills), Ruth Cislowski (West Hollywood), Jennie Cook (Silver Lake), Becky Gelhaar (La Cañada Flintridge), Jackie Goldberg (Echo Park), Carmenita Helligar (Burbank), Dr. Irene Kim (Hollywood), Dr. Ramella Markarian (Glendale), Patricia Peréz (Elysian Valley), Standolyn Robertson (Los Feliz), and Janice Segall (Pasadena).
