Kourtney Compton Then
Kourtney Compton, born in Tampa, Florida, and raised in Illinois and Utah with a younger brother and sister, has always had a knack for sports. She was athletic even from a young age, having started equestrian sports on her grandparents’ ranch. She continued showing horses for eight years, during which time she competed in all-around showing such as hunter jumping, barrel racing, English, and Western riding. In high school, Ms. Compton participated in track and field, later demonstrating her natural ability for public speaking as part of the debate team.
Much of Ms. Compton’s ability to present herself well is due to her experience with equestrian sports, as showing horses teaches showmanship and presentation skills. To tap into her love of competition, work ethic, and talent with public speaking, she began participating in beauty pageants, the first of which was Miss Teen Utah USA 2010. Kourtney Compton became the 2010 Miss Runner Up Teen Utah and later earned the title of 2011 Miss Teen Utah World.
Kourtney Compton’s modeling career began after a modeling agent, having watched Kourtney perform in a pageant, approached her to ask about a future as a model. Kourtney quickly took to the industry—her first job saw her finish as a finalist in a competition for fitness modeling through Gold’s Gym.
