A former special educational needs teacher who quit the classroom to become an OnlyFans star claims she is "changing lives".

Stunning brunette Courtney Tillia quit her nine to five school job to get her kit off online and says she has been coining it during the coronavirus lockdown with fans stuck at home and desperate for her sexy content.

The 33-year-old, from Arizona, USA, makes four times her teaching salary, and said she is "not ashamed" of being a "sex worker".

She said: "I've been making even more money during the pandemic because people are just stuck at home wanting to enjoy my content.

"Back when I was a teacher, my family really struggled financially.

Courtney says her six-figure OnlyFans salary allows her to support her family

"OnlyFans allows me financial freedom. I can provide everything my family needs and more."

Courtney, who has more than 160,000 followers on Instagram, now pockets a six-figure salary which allows her to support her four children and husband, who gave his blessing to her extreme career change.

Before deciding to get her kit off Courtney taught in a special educational needs school.

The mum-of-four said: "I'd been teaching special needs students at an alternative school in Phoenix for six years.

"I suddenly found myself in a really dark place. I was beginning to hate my job and that darkness began spilling over into other areas of my life."

Courtney added that she hopes her story will encourage other women to express their sexuality.

She said: "I work with hundreds of women all over America, Australia, Europe and everywhere. I'm helping those clients break through the shame and guilt that's been imposed upon them for wanting to be free to express their sexiness.

"I feel better than I ever have in my life.

'I've changed my life financially, I'm changing the lives of other women, I'm happy just doing me."
