MRS. CALIFORNIA 2021

COURTNEY O'STEEN

Courtney and her husband Kenny will celebrate 22 years of marriage this July. They have to two amazing kids, Kaylee Lynn & Peyton Michael and 3 fur babies. As a survivor of child abuse, Courtney was looking for a way to serve young women that came from some similar circumstances and show them they are unstoppable and capable of anything their heart desires. She’s the founding chapter member of Chicktime, a national nonprofit that provides monthly empowerment workshops to young women who are survivors of abuse and are in the foster care system. 

Courtney is an entrepreneur, business owner and avid horseman. For years, she has served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. She started writing about her life experiences that have shaped her into the woman she is, her passions, thoughts, and curious wonderings about our world. She founded Famous in her Own Mind with a mission to give others a safe space to learn and grow their gifts and talents. Courtney is also the Founder of The People Project, a social awareness mini series born during the pandemic created to educate people on pressing social issues. It has since manifested into a series to highlight people making positive waves in their communities. 

When Courtney isn’t volunteering in her community or being a Mama & Wife she enjoys traveling, finding unique coffee shops and enjoying a good glass of wine. You can find her most evenings in joggers and a messy bun.
