Casey is a speaker, author, leadership development expert and executive coach. During her career she closed millions of dollars in sales yet had humble beginnings. An introvert and reformed wallflower, she almost was fired from her first sales job by being a slow learner on insurance industry concepts. Additionally, the company required that sales reps memorize and deliver a nine-page speech verbatim. Casey saved her job when she excelled delivering the presentation and won a district-level speech competition. She stumbled onto a key realization – when you master your speaking and presence, you can win over any room, anywhere. She went on to smash sales records, enjoyed promotions and spent the latter part of her corporate career training and mentoring others.

Casey was a senior leader at Aetna, Cigna, and Sunrise Senior Living. At EmblemHealth she trained a sales force of several hundred and coached leaders and high potentials to improve their performance. Currently CEO & Founder of Speak & Own It Communications, she works with women executives across all industries to connect, lead, pitch, and speak and own every room in the virtual world.

When she’s not working on her enterprise, Casey is a Pitch Coach for inner city entrepreneurs at Rising Tide Capital. She is a Guide for Chief, facilitating peer group discussions for C-suite women leaders. She is a docent at her local art museum and loves initiating conversations about art. She can’t wait to attend group exercise classes at the gym once again.

Her book is on Amazon: "Introverts in Sales: Turn Your Peaceful Power into a Profitable Selling Machine."
