Ha'Leigh always felt a passion for Child Advocacy, and was introduced to CASA in the summer of 2019 while doing an undergraduate internship with them in her hometown. Ha'Leigh always felt a strong connection to the work done at CASA, and felt that it brought out her strongest passions and convictions. She now works for CASA DC as our newest EMPOWER Program Manager!! 


In her free time, Ha'Leigh enjoys playing with her Lab/Boxer mix Remi, trying new restaurants and coffee shops in DC, pretending she personally knows Olivia Benson, and spending time with friends and family.
