Grace Geisler, Education Advocate
Grace began working with the CAC in November of 2012. While recovering from an eating disorder during her teens, Grace decided to commit her life to helping others by working towards her degree in counseling. She received her Bachelor's degree in psychology in 2001 and her Master's degree in Community Counseling in 2003 from Troy University. Since then, Grace has worked in both inpatient and outpatient clinical settings, and her truest joy is helping children feel valued, loved and understood. Grace spends most of her workday educating students and community members about the signs and symptoms of child abuse and how to report it. A native of Headland, Alabama, Grace resides there with her husband, Matt, daughter, Maggie, and their beloved pets. She enjoys being a board member of the local dog shelter, singing, traveling and reading. A huge fan of Mr. Rogers, one of Grace's favorite quotes from the influential child advocate is "It's easy to say, 'It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem.' Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes."
