Member since 2017
Welcome to CSAE! I’m Casey and I am currently the Membership Specialist at CSAE. As the Membership Specialist, I work closely with the Young Professionals Task Force and the CSAE team to foster a vibrant community of rising leaders in the association.
What do you get out of your membership with CSAE?
Everyday, I have the pleasure of working with the dynamic team at CSAE.
CSAE has provided me with the opportunity to learn and connect with association professionals across Canada and build opportunities to leverage aspiring leaders in the association and not-for-profit sector.
What is your most nostalgic childhood memory?
Being by the ocean. When I was younger, I moved around a lot, I was born in Maui and I lived in San Francisco before moving to Toronto. My most nostalgic childhood memories are camping in the Redwoods and going for picnics at the beach.
What keeps you motivated?
Having a purpose and being able to help people - I love hearing people’s stories. I also really enjoy organizing initiatives that strive to make a positive social change and give back to the community.
What does leadership mean to you?
Leadership is contagious. True leaders have the ability to spark leadership in those around them and great leadership is empowered through collaboration, authenticity, and inclusivity.
What’s one piece of advice you would like to share with others?
“Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” - Mother Teresa
Time is incredibly precious and it’s easy to think of it as being infinite, but there is no guarantee of tomorrow. Appreciate every moment, especially the moments that are all too often considered to be ordinary or inbetween.
Who inspires you?
Without a doubt, my family. They constantly inspire me to be compassionate, creative, and courageous.
Recommend another CSAE aspiring leader to be featured.
