I put purpose into practice by…
being a calm presence who takes the solutions-based approach.
Expertise: Communications Planning, Team Management, Budgeting, Campaign Strategy and Planning
As an Associate Producer at August Jackson, Casey helps to grow and strengthen client relationships, while also ensuring day to day project management and execution is met by the AJ teams.
Casey has a lot of prior experience in the agency world. She started her career as a Communications Associate for a national media research and consulting agency. Then, in 2016, she transitioned to a marketing and branding agency in Le Claire, IA, first as a project manager, then to an account executive. In 2019, the Chicago native returned home and worked for an event and experiential marketing agency. Along the way, she led her first RFP, executed a multi-million-dollar corporate event, and helped lead qualitative field research for car dealers in 15 markets.
Outside of work, Casey’s desire to travel the world has also fueled her curiosity and need to learn more about cultures she has not experienced before. She is currently learning French (Merci, Duolingo!) and hopes to continue to travel abroad through personal travel as well as executing events and campaigns abroad.
When asked why she loves working at AJ, Casey said, “From my first interaction at AJ, to today, I’m never felt like just a number. They put a high emphasis on building strong employees through personal relationships that truly matter.”
