Co-Founder, Courtney Arrington-Baldwin
The launch of SANCTUAIRE is a long-time dream for Courtney Arrington-Baldwin. The original concept was birthed in 2017, a couple of years after her departure from an expansive 15-year career in the construction industry. A Tufts University graduate and civil engineer by trade, Courtney worked for more than seven years as a project engineer with Turner Construction and then moved her efforts to work as an owner’s representative in hospitality construction with Mark G. Anderson Consultants. Her experience as an owner’s representative included a variety of luxury hotel projects including Sheila Johnson’s, Salamander Resort & Spa. In 2015, after leaving her construction industry career she began to focus on her personal wellness and life as an entrepreneur. She always had a love for nutrition and movement and spent many years as a Pilates instructor. iN 2020, Courtney co-founded SANCTUAIRE with her husband, Donnell Baldwin, who shares her passion for Black wholeness.
Together, Courtney and Donnell hope that SANCTUAIRE will create a community where we can all build happier, healthier, and more abundant lives.
