We are excited to welcome Ashley Berman to the Texas CASA team as our new Grants Management Specialist I! Ashley will be taking the place of Benita Pekkattil, who will be transitioning to a new role with the Social Impact team. Ashley will be responsible for the administration of the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Advocate/Volunteer Travel, VOCA Background Check, Title IV-E, and License Plate grants, as well as other grant projects as assigned.
Ashley was first involved with CASA in late 2009 as a child in the foster care system. Given her experience, Ashley has always had a deep passion to advocate for children in foster care. To say Ashley was thrilled to be given the opportunity to work at Texas CASA is an understatement! She is excited to know that she will be helping children in care by supporting local CASA programs. Prior to joining Texas CASA, Ashley spent the last nine years working in sales for the electrical industry and is ready to bring her skills and perspective to the Grants Team at Texas CASA.
Join us in welcoming Ashley, and congratulating Benita on her new role!
