Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA has new director

Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA, a nonprofit organization that educates volunteers to advocate in court for children who are victims of abuse and neglect, welcomes new Executive Director Suzanne “Sue” Fegelein.

Sue has a bachelor’s degree in social ecology from Fort Lewis College, and a J.D. from the University of Idaho College of Law. Sue is an attorney who has been practicing primarily family law in Sandpoint, Idaho, for about nine years.

During that time she has been appointed as a Guardian ad Litem and attorney for children in many cases, and enjoys advocating for children. Sue is also an Idaho Supreme Court-certified child custody mediator. She is very excited to work with CASA and to help children who are victims of abuse and neglect.

Sue believes in supporting the community; she served on the Board of the Panhandle Animal Shelter as well as the Ponderay Parks Committee in Idaho, and cannot wait to dive into the communities CASA serves here in the 14th Judicial District.

Sue and her husband Jeff have been married for 15 years. They have two young children and one dog. Sue lived in Steamboat Springs for several years in the 1990s and early 2000s, and is very excited to return to Colorado. Sue will be based in CASA’s Steamboat Springs office, while serving Moffat, Routt and Grand Counties. Sue likes snowboarding and spending time outdoors with her family, and cannot wait for her kids to experience all that Colorado has to offer.
