Please join us in welcoming Melissa Markey to the Texas CASA team as a Collaborative Family Engagement (CFE) Coach. Melissa will be the CFE Coach for Dallas and surrounding/north Dallas area.
Melissa was one of the first CFE Coach contractors for Texas CASA back in 2016, before she joined CASA of Tarrant County as their CFE Lead. She has led Tarrant County’s CFE work over the past year-and-a-half and has helped them make great strides in embedding the practice.
Melissa grew up in Pennsylvania, where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Edinboro University. Before working with the CFE initiative, she worked as a Child Protective Services worker in North Carolina and Indiana. She holds a Texas Teaching certification and worked as an Intermediate Teacher for two years in a low income school in the Fort Worth area – and she is a talented trainer and engaging family meeting facilitator.
Welcome back to the Texas CASA family, Melissa!
