CANADIAN COUNTY CASA VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT:

Taylor Denning

When did you say “yes” to becoming a CASA? July 2020!

Why are you a part of CASA’s volunteer team? As a student, I wanted to learn more about family law. I had no idea what CASA was until someone I follow on social media shared she was a volunteer in Dallas. I thought it was such a great volunteer and learning opportunity!

Do you have a favorite memory from volunteering? Watching all of my CASA kids grow and seeing them evolve and learn so much over this last (exhausting) year.

What age of children do you work with and why did you choose that age? My CASA kids are 8, 6, and 3. I was pretty open to any age group!

What is one thing that would surprise someone to learn about you? I am actually very quiet and reserved.

What is your occupation? How does volunteering fit into your work schedule? I actually just recently changed careers. I was a hairstylist for 5 years, I now work in a law firm as a case manager while going to school full time for Paralegal Studies.

What are your hobbies/interests/fav sports team? I enjoy gardening in the Spring and Summer, trying new gluten free recipes, going on walks and naps!!

If you are married, how long have you been married? Do you have children? Pets? SNot married, but I have been with my S.O. for 5 years now. Our only children are furry and four-legged.

Why would you invite others to volunteer within our program? It's such a rewarding experience getting to advocate for children who can’t advocate for themselves in court.
