Dear Rick,

Thanks for contacting me. I apologize for not being available over the phone. I actually have already been to college - University of Massachusetts at Amherst up here in MA. And now I work at a fine company doing internet marketing and am quite happy doing that. I'm not looking to switch careers, though it appears that another 'Casey Williams' is.

Due to my love of the interwebs, I was one of the early adopters of gmail, and as such, have the coveted 'caseywilliams at gmail' email address. It seems that the name 'Casey Williams' is just common enough that there's more than one of us, but not as common as a 'Mike Smith' or 'Bob Williams' (my dad) so we're generally pretty careless when it comes to correctly writing our email addresses. Well, I write mine correctly, but I'm speaking on behalf of the other Casey Williamses.

It's complicated by the fact that Casey can be male or female. For reference, I am female.

Good luck trying to get in touch with my doppelganger. I fully support any interest in higher education, especially in the health field!

PS. When you address letters, you should use a colon or comma, not a semi-colon. Just a helpful FYI.


  1. It never ends!!

  2. Yesterday I found out there is another Casey Williams who goes to my [all female] gym. WE ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts and opinions! Makes this much more interesting.
