Bek Coelho has been closely involved with the CASA organization since 2014 – serving on a multi-child case with Boston CASA and as a Development Committee member with Denver CASA. Bek, a Colorado native, spent nearly a decade on the East Coast, working in research at Boston Children’s Hospital and leading an early stage biotech company through various clinical trials and FDA submissions. Bek currently works as the Senior Director of Commercial Strategy at DispatchHealth in Denver, focused on bringing all components of healthcare into the home. Personally, Bek is a first generation Brazilian-American, who is committed to the work of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Bek and her partner, Igor, are very proud foster parents to a six month old boy and spend most of their time with him, their large families and their six year old Bernese Mountain Dog. The mission of Denver CASA is very personal to Bek as the work of child advocates bridge all of her passions – improving long term physical and mental health outcomes for children, advocating for the cultural nuances of children and families of all backgrounds and providing a voice to the most vulnerable members of our society. Bek is grateful and enthusiastic to be a part of the Denver CASA team!
