For Casey, the biggest benefits of plant-based eating are feeling great and being able to keep up with her energetic toddler! Being with her family brings her great joy, as does traveling and growing vegetables in her garden. She certainly gets enough exercise running after her son, but Casey also enjoys yoga and paddle boarding. Through her initial work as an ER nurse, Casey realized that she wanted to get to people sooner and help them improve their health and their lives before they reached a crisis point. She has been working ever since as a Nurse Practitioner in primary care medicine. Her passion is in educating and empowering the people around her to take charge of their health through the big and small decisions they make every day. She sees health not as a stand-alone goal, but as a tool to help enable people to live their best lives. Casey has a bachelor's degree in nursing from Boston College, a master's in Nursing from New York University, and a Holistic Health Coach Certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in NYC. She believes in the power of a plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle to nourish health and to prevent and reverse chronic disease.
Casey’s favorite wellness read is “The Disease Delusion,” Dr. Jeffrey Bland. She is honored to be facilitating Wellness Challenge 360°, sharing her experience and knowledge to help empower others.
