Casey hails from Northern Virginia, and after graduating from Covenant College in 2012 with a BA in Art, she and her husband Brandon made Birmingham, Alabama, their home. After spending years in the world of retail, Casey eventually found her passion in styling, creative direction, and in her first love, art. She has very much enjoyed her role at Dogwood Hill, which consists of curating social media posts, styling Dogwood Hill’s products at photoshoots, and creating artwork as a Dogwood Hill artist. Outside of work, Casey enjoys traveling with her family, hunting for vintage clothes, reading biographies on George Washington, and in 2020 welcomed her first daughter, Zoe, into the world.
