|Central Texas' First Special Olympics Kayaking Team|
Casey first came to the Ranch during Ranch Camp several years ago while a student at A and M, spent a while working weekends, and slid right into full-time employment after graduation.
Her 40-hour week consists of keeping track of the personal plans and training goals of the Ranchers, serving as their advocate, maintaining voluminous files on each of them, and overseeing and ensuring their rights, well-being, and safety, all of which she manages to do effectively, efficiently, and with great good humor.

Sunday all their hard work paid off. Despite stiff winds, each kayaker stayed in their lanes, correcting nimbly when the wind threatened to blow them off-course. "They did great!" said Casey. "Watching them go down their lanes, especially in that wind, and stay calm even when they got a little sideways and had to correct was very, very awesome!"
