Having now visited the people of over 44 countries, Casey continues to be a global thinker who values relationships foremost. She works diligently behind the scenes to ensure continual forward movement for her clients, and for our planet.

Casey says: 

"Antarctica is a symbol of our changing climate and women play a critical role in addressing climate change.  In developing countries, women's work is closely tied to the environment (e.g., water and firewood collection, agriculture) and in more developed countries, research shows that women are more likely to adopt climate-positive actions such as endorsing energy efficiency measures or buying organic food. We also know that organizations with women in leadership excel.

My belief in the power of women's leadership stems from a strong foundation at HB and I'm proud to be able to promote that same message in the conservation space because we need women at the center of climate solutions to be most effective."
