Before coming to CASA of Robertson County in October 2016, I had been with Nashville CASA program since May 2010. I began my CASA career in 2010 as an Advocate Supervisor supporting and guiding volunteers on cases. In June of 2014, I took a leadership role as Program Supervisor, where I oversaw the referrals made to Nashville CASA, maintained CASA’s relationship with the court and DCS, and provided supervision over the Advocate Supervisors. Since obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Cumberland University in 2000, I worked for DCS in Wilson County, as well as DCS Mid-Cumberland Region. Other work experience is with a non-profit program that provides support services to individuals with barriers to independence. I am most passionate about serving others; in particular our more vulnerable populations, and I believe that healing and advocacy are two of the most powerful platforms to help that process along. I strongly value the importance of family, those of which I serve, and my own. I am married, we have one child, and live in the White House area, so taking the Executive Director position at Robertson County CASA has allowed me to continue pursuing my work with CASA, closer to home. I am excited for the future of Robertson County CASA and being a part of it.
CASA Advocate Supervisor
In August of 2017 I chose CASA of Robertson County to complete my internship towards earning my Bachelor of Social Work degree from Austin Peay University in December of 2017. I was very excited when my internship concluded in December 2017, I graduated, and was offered a CASA Advocate Supervisor position. I was introduced to CASA by a previous Board Member as a writing project early in my Bachelor studies. From that moment I knew I wanted to be a part of the work done through CASA organization for children and families. I have a strong passion for serving others particularly children and families that are in need of care, protection, or services. I look forward to putting into action my education and prior work experience to serve children in my community.
