KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Courtenay DeHoff
Thursday, February 10th, 8:00 a.m.

 

Courtenay DeHoff is a cowgirl turned television personality, keynote speaker and podcast host. She has worked on-air in front of sold out crowds at sporting events inside Madison Square Garden and anchored live telecasts for national news networks.  From New York Fashion Week to the back of a horse, you never know where she’ll be reporting from next.

In 2020, DeHoff launched the global brand movement Fancy Lady Cowgirl ™  after struggling to fit the traditional cowgirl mold.  Drawing criticism from those in the very communities she was advocating for, she labeled herself a ‘Fancy Lady Cowgirl’ proclaiming you can be both a little fancy and a little ranchy.  The reaction to this self label was swift.  Women from all walks of life emerged and began sharing how they too uphold traditions of the West in unexpected ways.  Through storytelling and fashion Fancy Lady Cowgirl is working to bridge the gap between urban and rural cultures.

Her keynote addresses will leave you laughing and tearing up in one sitting.  You will walk away with a new understanding of what it means to be a cowgirl or cowboy and how you can embrace it in your own unique way.
