She is the co-founder and president of the public health and social action organization GrassROOTS Community Foundation and leads its SuperCamp for girls.

Casey foundations. Her work on the effects of safety on girls’ physical activity in low-income neighborhoods led her to serve as an advisor to the city of Newark, where she focused on violence as a public health issue.
