I have been with the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Program since 1992; starting out as a CASA Advocate. I started coordinating the CASA Program in 1995. I currently coordinate Scott, Henry, Louisa, Des Moines and Lee Counties. In 2003, I also began coordinating the Iowa Citizens Foster Care Review Board (ICFCRB). I have been blessed to meet many wonderful diverse Advocates, from different walks of life, willing to give back to their communities and I look forward to meeting many more. It truly takes a special person, willing to dedicate their time to those less fortunate, and advocate for the needs of children, families and communities.
