Casey's Published Writing

During high school, Casey poured some of her energy into writing and journalism, anchoring the school's news program, writing and editing the school newspaper (Spri Hian) and serving as senior editor of the yearbook. She was also lead critic from Springfield High School for the greater Philadelphia region Cappies, writing reviews of other high school’s theater productions, which were published in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Casey also graduated from the News Studies internship program at KYW News Radio and completed an internship at CBS Channel 3 Television News during her high school years. Immediately upon high school graduation Casey wrote for the News of Delaware County during the summer of 2006, toting a camera along with her and also taking photos to accompany her stories.

Upon arriving At Fordham University, she immediately started writing for the Fordham Observer and became assistant news editor as a sophomore and news editor as a junior. She was to continue as news editor during her senior year. During the summer of 2008 Casey wrote for Philadelphia Style Magazine and during the spring semester of 2009, for amNewYork. She also freelanced during college, which included writing for the Bronx tourism bureau. Just days before her accident, Casey was quite excited to accept an internship for the fall of 2009 at NY1, a Manhattan based television station.

News of Delaware County

Casey had just completed her freshman year of college in the summer of 2007 and was thrilled that this local newspaper gave her an internship. Within minutes of reporting to work on her first day, Casey’s editor gave her a camera and her first assignment – to go to Fair Acres (nursing home) in Lima, Pa. and report on their 200th anniversary celebration, with photos. That was it – no training, no instructions, just go do it. Casey was up to the task, called Mom for directions to Fair Acres, and proceeded on her 1st real assignment as a reporter. She completed the assignment and her story with photos was published in the following edition of the paper.

Temperature breaks 90, but the water's still a little cold. First, one must endure the fight through molasses-slow, bumper-to-bumper traffic. Once one finally reaches his or her shore respite, the sights and sounds of summers past repeat themselves with soothing familiarity: the whir of…

Fordham Observer

Soon after arriving at Fordham, in the fall of 06’ where Feldman majored in communication and media studies with a concentration in journalism, Casey joined The Observer, the newspaper at the Manhattan campus, getting her first news bylines as a freshman, becoming an assistant news editor as a sophomore and news editor as a junior. She was set to return as news editor during her senior year and had just come back from the annual Observer summer retreat just weeks before her accident.

“Casey was an exceptionally talented news reporter and editor — an inquisitive, dogged and thorough perfectionist,” said Elizabeth Stone, a professor of English and communication and media studies, and faculty adviser to The Observer. "…Her news reporting and editing won quite a few awards for The Observer, and she herself had recently been recognized as well — as a finalist in a contest for college reporters who write about religious issues.”

Casey was so happy to have a paid job during the summer of 2008 in Philadelphia at this magazine and enjoyed her time there. She would bring home every new issue of the magazine and made sure that we (mom & dad) saw her published articles.

These words were contained in a note accompanying a beautiful sympathy bouquet to the family, “Casey was a wonderful writer and will be greatly missed.” The entire Nice Media and Philadelphia Style Family.

Casey's articles for Philadelphia Style will soon be uploaded to this site.

AM New York

Casey interned during the spring semester 09', at amNew York, a daily newspaper.

Casey's "internship last spring at amNew York presented a real challenge for her because at last she was working in daily journalism in the media capital of the world, but in a position that was not exactly what she had in mind when she thought of serious reporting. Her beat was the NY bar scene, which interested her editor far more than it did her. Nevertheless, she did her best to try to make her stories lively. Through her typical combination of hard work, diligence, and persistence, she was at last able to convince her editors that she was ready for more. And during her last weeks of the internship, she produced several articles that showed she had all the makings of a serious general assignment reporter—which was one of her chief goals."
