1. How long have you been a CASA board member?
I’ve been a CASA board member since August/September 2022. I was recently elected to the position of Vice Chair and also Fundraising Committee Chair.
2. What brought you to apply to join the CASA Board of Directors?
Around April 2022 I was contacted about applying to the board. Unfortunately, since I was currently working for the Department of Child Services, there was concern regarding a conflict of interest. When I changed careers, I reached out to see if the offer still stood, and here we are!
3. Besides being a CASA board member, what do you like to do in your spare time?
My spouse and I are homebodies, but we would like to travel more now that restrictions have lessened. When we’re home, we’re loving on our three kitties, playing games, or just spending time together.
4. What do you love the most about volunteering with CASA?
When I worked at DCS, I had the pleasure of working with many CASAs. Every single one challenged me in a different, but positive, way. To rethink my perspective. Re-evaluate priorities. Consider alternatives that hadn’t even crossed my mind. Cross Ts or dot Is that I had overlooked. I learned from every single one of them, making me want to be a better person each day. I joined CASA because I believe in the work it does, but more specifically, the work that each of the volunteers does, and I am honored to be a part of it.
