CANADIAN COUNTY CASA VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT:

Erica Baker

Why are you a part of CASA’s volunteer team? To make a difference in children’s lives, and to give them a voice.

Do you have a favorite memory from volunteering? When the kiddos mom got her rights back and got to go to trial reunification.

What age of children do you work with and why did you choose that age? Originally 0-6 because I have never been around older kiddos, however I stepped out of my comfort zone on my current case to take older kiddos because they need a voice as well.

What is one thing that would surprise someone to learn about you? I was bit by a zebra at a drive through safari.

What is your occupation? How does volunteering fit into your work schedule? Government vendor manager, I have a flexible schedule and make my own hours.

What are your hobbies/interests/fav sports team? Shopping, arts and crafts.

If you are married, how long have you been married? Do you have children? Pets? 10 years. 1 Child Aubrey-10 yrs old, and 2 foster kiddos.

Are you involved in any other volunteer roles you want to share with us? Foster parent.

Why would you invite others to volunteer within our program? It is a rewarding experience and gives me even more of a chance to change a child’s life for the positive. It lets the child know that there is someone in their corner who is looking out for their needs.

Do you have a favorite quote you want to share? A child can never have too many people love them.
