How long have you been an Advocate?
Approximately 10 years.
What brought you to CASA?
After spending a 35 year career in special education, I was searching for a retirement opportunity to continue working with children in need . CASA has been a good fit for me in this regard.
What keeps you at CASA?
CASA continues to give me the opportunity to advocate for and make a small difference in the lives of children.
What CASA experience stands out the most?
My first CASA case involved three very young foster children who were eventually adopted by a couple. Weeks later while grocery shopping, I ran into this new family. The smiles on their faces warmed my heart and assured me that I was part of a positive change in their lives.
