Working for CASA has allowed me to be a part of an organization whose mission is truly aligned with something I believe so deeply in – the well-being of children.  After choosing to leave the corporate world for fifteen years to raise my family, I found it much more compelling to return to work in a role where I could devote my time to making a difference in the lives of neglected and abused children.  It didn’t take long to realize just how special the CASA program is!  I am proud and privileged to be able to actually impact our community by offering at-risk children the best chances available for them to thrive.  I feel extremely fortunate that I am part of a team of dedicated staff members and advocates who are fully committed to enabling positive outcomes in these children’s lives, and hopefully stopping the cycle of abuse and neglect for generations to come.
