Cute and petite 5'2" blonde Courtney Simpson was born on September 5, 1985 in Phoenix, Arizona. She grew up in a conservative Mormon household and was a gymnast for ten years (she even won a national bar competition). Simpson lost her virginity at age 18. An honor student in grade school, Courtney attended Arizona State University following graduation from high school. While at Arizona State she was a member of the cheerleading squad until she got kicked out in the spring of 2005. Her parents subsequently deprived Simpson of their financial support, so she decided to work on her own in order to pay her bills. Courtney answered a newspaper ad for a nude modeling assignment and filmed her first segment for an adult website shortly thereafter. Simpson started performing in explicit hardcore movies at age 19 in 2005; she has worked for such major companies as Vivid, Wicked, New Sensations, and Red Light District. In September, 2006 Courtney announced her retirement from the adult film industry and stopped appearing in hardcore features altogether in 2007. However, Simpson began performing again in adult movies a year or so later before eventually retiring a second and apparently final time in 2010.
