CASA Volunteers find themselves enmeshed in the child welfare system by choice. These brave and caring individuals are determined to ensure the children they are privileged to stand up for have their voice heard and best interests represented. This advocacy work can be challenging under normal circumstances. Now add in the complexities of current times, and the not only does the challenge become greater, the work becomes even more important. Learning how to self-coach through the intricacies of today is the fastest way to go from frustrated and sad to accepting what is, and even your next case.

She has extensive experience managing volunteers and believes mindset coaching is the key to helping staff and volunteers care for themselves while doing this critical, yet often mentally and emotionally painful work.
