'Set Aside to Grow Wild' 

Casey left a thriving 'successful' life as a jewelry artist in the rock and roll industry in LA for the unexpected world of van life. She lived in a van for over 2 years, which taught Casey how to face her life-long fears, crippling anxiety and panic attacks. She spent time in the desert healing and learning to set herself aside to grow wild. This is where Casey found her 'true self' and her newfound philosophies on money, success, gender and happiness.

'Running Past Empty' 

Casey spent 31 days riding solo across both islands of New Zealand. Carrying only her essentials (food/water/tent), Casey faced obstacles beyond her abilities yet completed over 3000km on the bike. Learn how she found the tenacity to keep going, even when she was running past empty.
