Jennifer Locasale-Crouch

Dr. LoCasale-Crouch is an active, compassionate citizen within the local Charlottesville community. She organizes a CASTL Caring Committee and regularly rallies students, staff, and faculty within our research center to be connected within the community. This has involved leading efforts to prepare meals for the Ronald McDonald House, volunteering and providing resources to Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, cleaning up the Camp Holiday trails system, bringing activities to the Area Senior Center, and organizing a gift and clothes drive for children in need during every winter holiday season. All of these efforts are concentrated on giving back, being inclusive, and providing opportunities and resources to those who might otherwise not receive them; and, Dr. LoCasale-Crouch does all of it with an eye toward relationship-building and bringing people from diverse backgrounds together.
