Arvada, CO - Colorado-based humanitarian space agency, SpaceUnited, is excited to announce that director Courtney Wright has accepted a full-time engineering position on the Dragon project at SpaceX.

"After spending 4 years learning the ins and outs of running a successful business in the events and entertainment world, I am excited to get back to my true passion, spaceflight,” said Wright. “I’ve dreamed of traveling to space since I was five years old, and I’m thrilled to join a company (SpaceX) that is making commercial spaceflight a reality.”

Wright will move from Denver, CO to Southern California to work at SpaceX’s Hawthorne office. During her time in Colorado, Wright worked for Lockheed Martin and LivingSocial, as well as founding and running Neodea Design and Playhard Productions, in addition to her volunteer work at SpaceUnited.

"Courtney has been one of our best volunteers over the last couple years,” said Troy Dunn, SpaceUnited’s Board President and Executive Director. “She's a top fundraiser for our organization, she has a passion for doing good, and we're lucky to have such a talented engineer helping to direct our nonprofit."

Wright will use her ongoing space industry experience at SpaceX in her continuing director role at SpaceUnited to further the nonprofit’s mission of improving lives with space exploration.
