Happening at Manhasset CASA
A Message from our new Project Director
Greetings Manhasset Community!
I'm delighted to be writing to you as the new CASA Project Director from my office a
t the Manhasset High School. I have only been in the position for a week (I still get lost trying to find my office!) but I can already see the amazing impact of the work that CASA has been doing since 2001. (As you may know, Cathy Samuels has moved on to an opportunity in Massapequa, and we thank her for her 8 years of work and service!)
To share a bit about me: I have been in Manhasset since 2012, serving as Director of Spiritual Formation at Christ Episcopal Church/Community Reformed Church.
Prior, I worked on Broadway as Producing Director of Camp Broadway, an award winning children's theater company, and as a theatrical producer of numerous productions on and off Broadway and in London. I have worked with such companies as NBC Universal, Royal Caribbean International and Disney Theatricals, creating educational programming and social awareness campaigns offered in schools nationwide. And most recently, I launched One World Girl, a nonprofit organization that empowers and champions all girls to live their unique life stories, embrace diversity, and be agents for change in their community and the world.
Through my work, I've recognized that my
greatest passion is engaging people of all ages in thought-provoking, transformational conversations about 21st century challenges. I am delighted to be able to use my skills and experiences to help prevent substance abuse among our youth and strengthen the commitment in our community to ensure all of our youth grow up to live full and healthy lives. I think we have wonderful new things in store!
I look forward to meeting each of you soon and hearing your hopes, thoughts and concerns for our community. As you know, CASA can't do this work alone. So,
please reach out to say hello
at (516) 267-7548 and join us at one of our upcoming events this month. There is much going on, and we need everyone to get involved.
Our children are depending on us.
All my best to you!
