Chief Operating Officer, Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF)

As Chief Operating Officer for the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), Casey works to guide and support the organization’s programs and services and research and evaluation activities as well as its relationships with public and private funders.

Casey brings more than 25 years of public and private sector experience to her current leadership role at the IVMF.  Prior to joining, she led JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s efforts to develop and implement a comprehensive, firm-wide strategy to assist members of the military, veterans and their families. She oversaw the firm’s Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, which was responsible for among other things, the 100,000 Jobs Mission – a commitment with other companies to hire 200,000 veterans by 2020. Under her leadership, the Mission grew to nearly 200 companies, hired more than 240,000 veterans, and solidified JPMorgan Chase as a national leader in veteran employment.

Casey was previously held senior positions with Giuliani Partners LLC and the New York City Police Department (NYPD), initially as counsel to the First Deputy Commissioner and then as the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner for Policy and Planning. During her tenure, she was an integral part of the team leading the City’s response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Prior to assuming a leadership role at the NYPD, Casey spent more than 12 years working in New York State’s criminal justice system.

Casey received her J.D. from SUNY Buffalo’s School of Law and a Bachelor of Science, Magna Cum Laude, from the State University of New York’s College at Brockport. She was admitted to practice law in 1989.
