Meet the Team: Holly Himes
Holly Himes is a Senior at Ohio University studying Social Work. She is from Cincinnati, Ohio, and will be completing her internship during the Fall and Spring semester.
What brought you to work for CASA?
I am currently a Senior in the Social Work Program and part of the required classes is to have an internship. After looking at a long list of programs/organizations, CASA really stood out to me. What solidified my decision was talking to the staff and seeing how passionate they are about their job. Also knowing that I am an advocate for individuals.
Why is CASA important?
CASA is important because it allows individuals to help stand up for one of the most vulnerable populations and for the best interest. It also allows children to build healthy relationships with those who support them.
What do you do outside of CASA?
In my free time, I enjoy being outside and hanging out with my friends and family. I also really enjoy trying new coffee shops.
How do you wind down? Any self-care tips?
I wind down by painting, making string bracelets, listening to music, and playing with animals. I also wind down by going on a long drive and shopping when I have enough money to spend.
What is one thing people may not know about you?
I have five tattoos that are based on either family or mental health. I want two more in the future.
What is something interesting you learned recently?
One thing that I have recently learned is there are so many people who love and support you whether you are aware of it or not.
