Casey is the Co-Founder and Chief Academic Officer for SuitUp. As CAO, Casey handles the curriculum and educational aspects of SuitUp, establishing partnerships with schools and creating rigorous, engaging curriculum to match their students’ needs. While she is also currently the Director of Business Development at LeagueApps helping pro teams and pro leagues with their youth initiatives, her professional background is largely in education.
After graduating from Duke University in 2010 with a BA in Psychology and Markets & Management, Casey entered the Teach for America 2010 New York Corps as a Middle School ELA teacher in Harlem and transitioned to be a grade-level leader in another school in Brooklyn. It was during her time in the classroom while completing her Masters in Education from TeacherU at Hunter College where she created a wholly unique curriculum for SuitUp and incorporated it into two years of instruction. She then took that experience in the classroom to the edtech side of things at LightSail, an innovative K-12 digital literacy program, as the Director of Partnerships for the Midwest.
Casey suits up for education, sports, yoga, dogs, the beach, and Duke basketball.
