Casey Mims - Board Liaison
Casey Mims came to the Undivide Project through a 3rd party nonprofit volunteering platform called Catchafire, to specifically partner with the team on building out their founding board team. Casey has had several years being part of Non Profits (Junior League), and started doing Pro Bono work for various non profits through Catchafire in early 2022. After working extensively on the Board Building project, Casey decided to come on to The Undivide Project in an official capacity to continue helping the board stay mission focused as the first “Board Liaison”. Casey has an undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley in Psychology, and an MBA from UVA Darden (what brought her to Virginia), specializing in Business Analytics. She hopes to continue partnership with the Board as well as work on select data assignments for The Undivide Project. She is very excited to be part of the team!
