A designer, mom, community activist, and cultural questioner, Casey is constantly reimagining the world around her. A Bend native, she holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Visual Design and a minor in Business Administration from the University of Oregon. Casey's first design gig was at The Garage, Inc., a small creative firm known for innovative websites from 2000-2005. The company offered a full menu of print, branding and online media solutions to fulfill client needs in a small market. She left the company in 2005 and has been running her own show ever since.
Casey filters the projects that come her way and prioritizes work that creates positive social and environmental change. The work that fills her up these days is with environmental non-profits, partnerships and foundations. Her visually engaging reports and infographics filter complex technical data and projects into a communication tool that clients use to explain their work to their conservation communities, legislators, funders and the public. Current clients include Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB), University of Oregon, Deschutes River Conservancy, Upper Deschutes Watershed Council, Deschutes Partnership, and Reciprocity Consulting. Regional clients past and present include Deschutes Brewery, RuffWear, Harcourts The Garner Group, Central Oregon Pediatric Associates (COPA), Cascade Lakes Brewing and Groove Yoga.
Casey’s current passion project is an interactive journal entitled, Stoke Your Woke. The journal is a collaboration with “compassionate disrupter of the status quo”, Carol Delmonico, and includes 52 questions with writing prompts to move users into new ways of knowing, sharing, understanding and listening. It can be used privately or with groups (it includes a facilitation guide) and urges users to look beyond their individual lives, look closely at their impact, identify their blindspots and shift their consciousness toward interdependence and creating a world that works for all.
Casey is passionate about community building, local activism and urban design. She has served on multiple citizen advisory committees for the City of Bend and is an engaged community member at her son’s school. She’s a lover of all things community and loves living and learning with her family in a cohousing community in Bend, OR. If you live in Bend, you've probably seen her at a community event or commuting via electric cargo bike with her son. It is their preferred mode of transit.
