Current Month Spotlight

 

Name:  Casey Haack

Current Placement: LUNAFEST
 
Years in the League:   This is my second active year, I was a new member in Fall of 2015.
 

Why You Joined: I joined the League for so many reasons! First off, I wanted to find a way to give back to the community I grew up in, as well as develop friendships with like minded women. Second, having moved from Long Beach to Orange County at the end of 2014, I wasn’t seeing my family as much so my mom and I joined the League together! Third, I was looking to make a career change from sales to nonprofit, but I had no idea where to start. Joining the League and serving on the Fund Development committee my provisional year gave me the skills and experiences I needed to land a job at Make-A-Wish Orange County!

 

What You Do Outside of the League: I currently work at Cox Communications in Public Affairs, where I oversee all community giving (on the Corporate and Foundation side) and volunteer efforts in our Orange County and Palos Verdes footprint. When I’m not working or volunteering, my free time is consumed with planning my wedding.


An Interesting Fact You’d Like to Share:  
I have an unhealthy obsession with my Nespresso machine. My fiance and I are at their boutique in Fashion Island so often that they know us there! (I don’t know if this is interesting…or embarrassing haha)



One of Your Favorite Websites and Why:  That’s an easy one…Amazon.com! With the amount of things I have going on this year, I love being able to order anything from Christmas presents to groceries on Amazon and have it delivered right to my doorstep! I also love that Amazon will donate .5% of my purchases to my charity of choice…which is of course JLLB.
