Originally from South Florida, Casey has joined Y.O.U. from Austin, TX. Energized by empowering youth to navigate who they are and what they care about, Casey has supported youth through school-based social work and summer camp and after school programs. Additionally, while attending Florida State University, she facilitated leadership development and service learning programs at the Center for Leadership and Social Change. Driven to dig deeper into themes of social justice, Casey pursued her Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin where she engaged in research around childhood trauma, grief, and race and gender equity in healthcare.
In her free time, Casey enjoys spending time outside, shopping for used records, and trying out new baking recipes. She is excited to explore and build community in Evanston and Chicago!
