Managing Director, Human Resources and Organizational Development
Casey Family Programs
Casey Family Programs is the nation’s largest operating foundation focused entirely on foster care and improving the child welfare system. Founded in 1966, we work to provide and improve ─ and ultimately prevent the need for ─ foster care in the United States. As champions for change, we are committed to our 2020 Strategy for America’s Children – a goal to safely reduce the number of children in foster care and improve the lives of those who remain in care. Since our founding in 1966, we have invested more than $1.6 billion in programs and services to benefit children and families in the child welfare system. Over the next decade, we will invest at least $1 billion more to fulfill the promise of our 2020 Strategy. We have decades of front-line experience in foster care and are committed to helping states, counties and tribes implement effective child welfare practices. We provide nonpartisan research and technical expertise to child welfare system leaders, members of Congress and state legislators so they may craft laws and policies to better the lives of children in foster care, children at risk of entering the system and their families. The foundation, established by United Parcel Service founder Jim Casey, is based in Seattle.
As the Managing Director of Human Resources I am responsible for providing strategic and operational HR consultation and support to work units throughout the organization. This includes the planning, development, implementation, and administration of employment/staffing, compensation, benefits, performance management, organizational capability, recruitment, legal compliance, and employee relations systems throughout Casey Family Programs.

Mentoring Objectives & Scope
Objectives and Scope to be determined by the students, and what they want to get out of the mentorship experience; however suggestions include:
• Intro and understanding of Human Resources (HR) in an organization
• Transitioning to an HR career from an existing career
• Applying business education to a not for profit organization
• Managing and practicing interviewing, networking, resume building, etc.
Expectations are that the student will come prepared to share ideas, concerns, knowledge, etc. as the mentor relationship is a two way street; tell me how I can help you in your career (educational or work) but also be prepared to share what you know with others in the group. I love what I do and can talk about it for hours. But I don’t want to hear myself talk all the time; I want to hear what the students have passion about, what they want to do with their careers, and what they have to add to the mentoring sessions.
When and where do you hold meetings with your students?
I am open to meeting almost anytime; during work hours at my work location or on campus if better for the students. Saturdays also possible as necessary for the group.
