Program Manager

Children are my passion. I have six of my own and since I cannot have any more, I thought it would be nice to reach out and help other children secure a safe and permanent home.

My first case as a CASA volunteer spanned three years and involved three children. At first they were in home wards and lived with their mom, but after 2½ years the children were placed in foster care. Mom had supervised visits at the agency.

In December 2004, Mom was on her way to see her children for a supervised visit when she was involved in a fatal car accident. This was very tough for me as an advocate, because I became pretty close to Mom through the years. The children then went back to live with their dad. I was with the family until the end and beyond. That year, Judge Feeney nominated me for CASA of the year, stating that I went above and beyond what a CASA does. I would do it all over again, because I saw the difference a CASA makes.

I am thrilled to be the Program Manager for an organization that makes such a huge difference in the lives of children.
