Cortney Burns

Cortney is a trauma/burn nurse in the operating room at UAB hospital in Birmingham, AL. She was born with a kidney defect, which required multiple surgeries and hospitalizations until the age of 9. After spending so much of her time with nurses growing up, she decided to become one herself. She has been apart of the trauma/burn service for 4 years and her passion for her patients continues to grow every day. She is a former Miss Alabama runner up and currently serves on the board for the Tony Bice Memorial, which helps provide support for burn patients in Alabama.
