"Professor Natasha Casey kicked off our inaugural Mini Journalism School program in 2019 with a fascinating presentation on media literacy. She was engaging and the material was both educational and surprising at times! Our staff and attendees enjoyed the presentation so much that we invited Professor Casey back in 2020 for an updated presentation and look forward to a 2021 version. Media literacy is more important than ever right now. Professor Casey’s ability to make it fun to learn about is a bonus!"

"Working with Natasha throughout the course of the Media Literacy Education in Libraries for Adult Audiences project has been fantastic. Her insights, writing, and presentation for the project were invaluable. Our team would work with her again in a heartbeat and the people who attended her webinar absolutely loved her. We’ve gotten so much positive feedback on her presentation from attendees."
“This was such a rich presentation. You've helped me so much with understanding these issues! Thank you! Thank you!”
