Casey is a Nashville native, currently working in the missions department at her local church. You can find her drinking a dirty chai behind her laptop at a coffeeshop, swooning and singing at a Johnnyswim concert, rollerblading at the park, or binge watching “The Office”. She loves all things: music, food, the outdoors, books, travel, coffee, dancing, and animals (except birds – don’t ask). She’s passionate about raising awareness on the things that matter, real community and discipleship, and seeing how God has given each of us a piece of His heart to display and steward for His glory. Being on the Artfully Seeking team, she’s excited to experience and promote the creative ways that God is moving in all of us, through our unique outlets, into the world for His Kingdom.
