Cheryl Albanese was born in Midland and graduated from Texas A&M with a BBA in Management. She has lived in Austin for 21 years and is currently a Realtor with Turnquist Partners. Cheryl has raised two wonderful children who attend college at The University of Texas and Georgetown University. She is committed to her membership at Life Austin and donates 10% of her profits to charity.
Cheryl began volunteering at CASA of Travis County in 2005 when she was going through a difficult time in her life. “I needed a place to focus my energy away from the negative things," said Cheryl. "I decided to put my positive energy towards CASA training."
On her cases Cheryl works very diligently to develop relationships with everyone involved. She puts a special focus on the relatives who could be potential placements for a child, to achieve a smooth transition if need be.
She emphasizes that instilling encouragement into a child can be what it takes to change his/her life. "I try to get them to be passionate about their interests," said Cheryl. "I strive to get them excited about what they like to do.” Through her time as a CASA advocate, Cheryl has had the privilege of impacting the lives of seven children.
