Casey is a scientist and freelance designer by trade, but she first and foremost considers herself a listener and a learner. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Utah and has worked with several non-profit organizations to strengthen their impact through research and design.
Having both utilized and managed community resources for at-risk populations, Casey believes strongly in the power of evidence-based education, in combination with compassion and empathy, to empower marginalized individuals—granting them the dignity they deserve. She is currently located in Washington, DC and spends her spare time hiking with her dog, Boots, and starting—but never finishing—the New York Times crossword puzzle.
Rebecca Hartsough Brentin
Rebecca is a self-described farm kid from Indiana who watched cats, pigs and dogs give birth. She is a singer/scientist who ended up mastering out of a PhD program and is now a sales rep for molecular biology reagents. She didn’t realize how much parents are underserved and families are unsupported until she had her two kids, who are 2 and 4 now. It was huge struggle for her to find accurate birth education, information about perinatal disorders, breastfeeding support and recovery after childbirth. She is really passionate about breastfeeding support and supporting new families, because starting a new baby is incredibly hard.
