Texas CASA is pleased to welcome Ann Strauser Palmer to our Public Policy team as our Legislative Advocacy Coordinator. Ann will be working with the CASA Legislative Advocacy Teams (LATs) as they advocate for positive change in the Texas child welfare system.
After receiving her law degree from the University of Houston, Ann went to work with the Texas Legislature, first as a committee clerk and then as the legislative director and general counsel in the Texas House of Representatives. She previously worked for eight years in government relations and communications for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS). Ann is pleased to bring her experience with the legislature and child welfare system to the Texas CASA team – please join us in welcoming her!
