Originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, Casey started her career as a Legislative Assistant at the Uniform Law Commission in Chicago, Illinois, and assisted with the passage of uniform state laws (such as the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act and the Uniform Military and Overseas Voters Act). After working for the Uniform Law Commission for three years, Casey went on to work with the American Association of Diabetes Educators to promote state licensure initiatives for diabetes educators and the Access to Quality Diabetes Education Act of 2014.
Casey moved to Washington, D.C. in 2014 to work for DDC Public Affairs as the Associate Director of Program Management, and provided support for high-profile clients' grassroots programs.
In 2015 Casey joined the Addiction Policy Forum to work on an issue close to her, and her family's, heart - addiction. After a six-month absence, Casey returned to the Addiction Policy Forum in December 2017.
