RECENT UNC CHARLOTTE GRADUATE AND FORMER INTERN JOINS BRAVE STEP’S BOARD OF DIRECTORS
On Tuesday, Brave Step’s Board of Directors announced the addition of Casey Denbow, a former intern and recent University of North Carolina at Charlotte graduate, to the nonprofit’s leadership team.
Drawn to Brave Step’s mission of empowering individuals impacted by sexual violence, Denbow started as a clinical intern in June 2021. As a psychology student, she worked closely with Brave Step’s program manager to support bi-monthly peer support groups and offer case management; planned new programs; established a trauma-informed library for survivors; coordinated two survivor outreach events with her sorority, Chi Omega; and more.
“As a clinical intern, Casey demonstrated drive, maturity and compassion that exceeded the expectations of the role,” said Yenting Liu, Brave Step’s program manager. “With her leadership and support, we were able to implement new initiatives and expand our services for our survivors and community. She consistently proved to be an invaluable member of the team and of the Brave Step family.”
“Casey is a thrilling addition for so many reasons: Her demonstrated passion and drive to support our mission are inspiring and more than enough to justify her inclusion on this board,” said Board President Caleb Holloway. “Casey is also helping us make history here, as Brave Step’s youngest ever and first Asian-American board member. We’re honored to welcome her fresh perspectives as we seek to serve a widely diverse community.”
