Casey Engels

Bio

Casey works, personally and professionally, to cultivate the social soil of resilient, caring, and equity-minded communities with dedicated co-conspirators. Currently rooted at the nexus of community empowerment, food security, and economic resilience, she is deeply committed to shared leadership, and holding space for ambiguity and experiment. Tending to process and emergence applies to the end of a cycle as well. Casey is a certified Death Doula, owner of Willowwood Deathcare, and supports folks in designing their End of Life experience and plans. In this realm, she is strongly oriented towards community deathcare, accessibility, and agency.

Starting in 2015, with her partner, and a heap of support from their community, Casey designed, built, and resided in a tiny home on wheels in Vermont. She has been a speaker at TinyHouse Fest Vermont, design reviewer, and has big thoughts about creative iterations of intentional living.  An interdisciplinary being at heart, Casey holds Certificates in Systems Thinking and Permaculture Design, a B.S. in Art Therapy, and myriad trainings in social change, sustainable food systems, and anti-oppression practices.
