Three years after retiring, I found that I yearned for continued learning opportunities, along with meaningful personal growth.
After reading about CASA in a community newsletter, and then attending a short information session; I was confident that volunteerism
was my answer. Through CASA of Galveston County, I have learned so much about the foster care system and those it serves; furthermore, receiving constant support and development opportunities. Being able to utilize the professional skill set I developed over 36 years as an educator, has been a bonus, when advocating for the best interests of my clients.
For me, my role as a CASA is a rewarding challenge; meanwhile, my husband and I still vacation, visit our sons, spoil our cats, and eat out; as often as possible.
