I am very passionate about domestic violence and love how CASA speaks up for survivors when they can’t find their voice.
I look foward to educating our community and breaking common misconceptions about domestic violence. I’m excited to join CASA and be a part of an agency that promotes change!”  EMAIL GABRIELA
