Casey Anderson
Board Member At-Large
Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation
.

Casey graduated from Maryville University’s Rehabilitation Counseling program in 2017 and started my career as crisis intervention advocate at YWCA St. Louis, offering support to individuals who experienced emotional, physical and sexual abuse. I then was promoted to the Program Supervisor of Crisis Intervention where I continued developing professionally; planning and facilitating community trainings, supporting a team of staff and volunteers and developing partnerships. I left YWCA in March 2020, joining VR as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor in the St. Charles office. I have found that my advocacy skills are valued here in my position. I have been on various committees and I am the designated VRC for the Work Based Learning program that coordinates and partners with Workforce Development, a CRP, and local school districts. I love making connections with others and watching folks discover confidence and independence by achieving their employment goals. I look forward to making a difference in people’s lives through our mission and vision here with the MRAEC.
