Americorps VISTA

– Casey Paskus

Howdy folks! I’m Casey, the new Climate Resilience and Development Coordinator VISTA! I’ll be working with the membership and staff of the SHC on sustainability and green design for existing houses and new properties.

I am so lucky to be returning to the co-op community! I lived in Vesta for two years (Fall 2016 to Spring 2018) while studying at MSU, where I majored in International Relations. After graduation I moved to DC to work at a nonprofit called KABOOM! where I helped groups from across the country apply for playground grants.

DC was fun, but Michigan was calling me home! Also, I missed going grocery shopping at Meijer. I’m so excited to work with you all on climate resilience and sustainability within the SHC, to learn from practices your houses have already put in place, and to be a proud member of the SHC once again!
