Casey, a native of Indiana, began her own recovery in Minneapolis, MN, in 1974, in the rooms of Al-Anon. She attended her first meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous in May of 1976. She has been sober and a “double winner” since that time.
She began her professional life as a third grade elementary teacher in Lafayette, IN, after graduating from Purdue University. After three years, she moved to Minneapolis, MN in 1964, with her first husband. She continued to teach elementary for another 5 years and then in 1971, pursued a Ph.D. in American Studies at the University of Minnesota where she taught in the General College.
Following graduation, in 1979, she went to work for Hazelden Foundation in their publishing division. Over the next dozen years she rose to the position of Publisher and Vice President. It was while working at Hazelden, that she began her “second career” as a writer, a passion she had nurtured since childhood.
Her first book: EACH DAY A NEW BEGINNING: DAILY MEDITATIONS FOR WOMEN, was published by Hazelden in 1982. It was the first book ever published specifically for women in recovery. Since the publication of that first book, which has sold more than 3 million copies, Casey has published another 26 books.
Casey served as a Trustee on the Hazelden Foundation Board for nine years. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her work in the field of addictions,
including being chosen as A Woman of Distinction by the Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity in 2001 and America Honors Recovery Award in 2007.
Along with writing books and keeping current with her blog which can be assessed on her website, Casey devotes her time to developing workshop presentations based on her
many books. She has lectured and offered workshops in Germany, Ireland, Mexico and Canada and throughout this country too.
Working with others in the many 12 step meetings she attends weekly is a passion as compelling as her passion for writing. She says her commitment to “spreading the word”
is what she feels born to do.
Relationships, and how to make them more peaceful, fruitful and joyful are at the core of the work that Casey is devoted to. Her primary concern is that people feel too disempowered to make the changes, personally and collectively, that can make this world a better place for all of us to inhabit. Her body of work currently is focused on helping people change how they see their role in the relationships that have attracted them in order for them to willingly see what they might do different in those relationships.
Casey is available for workshops, dinner or luncheon talks.

CALL FOR HEALING
Our opportunities to forgive are everywhere.
If we are relying on the ego to interpret the situations that involve us, we’ll be consistently misguided into believing we have been attacked. That’s the ego’s hope, at least, because then we’ll be willing to let it determine our response.
Yet, there is another way to perceive the attacks. The COURSE says they are always appeals for healing and help, but what does that really mean? It means the attacker was filled with fear, not arrogance, as we may have supposed. We have the opportunity to envelop that fear with forgiveness.
Depending on the severity of the attack, it may not be easy to turn the other cheek. We may initially refuse, in fact. The resulting chaos doesn’t bring us peace though, and we do want peace even when we don’t understand how to get it. That’s where the presence of the Holy Spirit comes in. It’s our avenue to peace in any situation. Every time we forgive another’s actions, peace will wash over us.
I WILL NOT LOOK HATEFULLY ON MY ATTACKERS TODAY.
I’LL SEE THEM AS NEEDING MY HELP.
