Monica Casanova, Immigration Clinic Asst. Director

Monica Casanova is the new Assistant Director of the LUM Immigration Clinic (reporting to the Immigration Clinic director). 

She grew up and lives in Lafayette with Neal Starkey, her husband, and their two daughters, Ella and Violet. Monica graduated from Jefferson High School, earned a BA in Education from Purdue University and two Master’s degrees in Library Science & Public History from Indiana University/Purdue University – Indianapolis, and is the vice president of the Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies.

As a longtime volunteer with the LUM Immigration Clinic, Monica is excited about her new role with Lafayette Urban Ministry. She shared that,

becoming the assistant director gives me an opportunity to increase my impact on the families served by the Immigration Clinic.

In her free time, Monica enjoys reading, watching movies & TV, listening to music — and most importantly spending time with her family and supporting her children in their activities. LUM is fortunate to have Monica join the LUM team.
