Program Director

Casey Farrell

I started my involvement with ACEing Autism as a volunteer in 2019 and just recently became the program director for the Newport program in 2023! I completed my undergraduate degree in 2023 from Salve Regina University, where I studied Elementary Education and Psychology. In addition to this, I started the accelerated program for my Masters in Behavior Analysis which I aim to complete by Summer of 2024. Aside from education, I also am a part of the Salve Regina Women’s Tennis team and have been fortunate to play tennis in the same city as the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Being so close to the ocean, I have taken on hobbies like surfing and enjoy days spent at the beach.

Assistant Program Director

Graysen Scherer

Hello! My name is Graysen Scherer and I am a senior at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI. I am originally from Mystic, CT. I am majoring in social work and minoring in marketing. I am also a member of Salve’s womens tennis team! I became apart of ACEing Autism in May of this year. We will be fully lauching the program this fall when we are back at school. 
This summer, I am currently living on Fishers Island, NY working at a country club in their summer camp program, office, and fine-dining restaraunt. When I am not working I love to go to the beach, go on bike rides, and explore the island.
I am very excited to be apart of ACEing Autism this fall!
