Casey Thompson | Program Manager

Casey is the Proposals Coordinator and oversees the development of new programs as well as “all things proposals” for Idea Fountain. If an event proposal goes out, it has come across Casey’s desk at least once.

Having graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinematography, Casey spent the next several years pursuing a Master of Interdisciplinary Studies Degree, learning business management and refining her skills in production management.

In 2014 Casey left academia to pursue her own business interests working in the television industry in various capacities from drone camera operator to director, but finding her true calling was to work within the LGBT community to help others embrace who they are.

Beginning in 2015 Casey began working with Heartland Transgender Events. Seeing the change in people when they are permitted to be themselves, without fear of judgment or physical harm, she worked with them to expand their semi-annual events and to grow the event to more than double in size. Today they proudly boast to be the largest transgender event in the southwest and to have had regular guests from four continents. Casey now proudly serves on the Board of Directors for Heartland Transgender Events.

After covid Casey found her way to Idea Fountain and has applied her learned skills and natural creative talents to contribute to the Idea Fountain team.

In her spare time, Casey enjoys riding her motorcycle and traveling across the country, happily following her wanderlust. She is an adventurous person who loves the adrenaline rush from paintball and extreme sports.
