Casey moved to Greenville from Southern California in 1980 with her husband Walter Kozlov. They are now owners of Pip Marketing, Signs and Print. They originally moved here to help their aging parents whom came to South Carolina in 1980 as immigrants from Kiev, Ukraine. The intent was to help them navigate and communicate with healthcare professionals and help with their living needs, but in reality, Casey believes she has benefited more from the relationship with her in-laws. Casey says, “how fortunate we are to have this incredible relationship with these amazing people (my In-laws). I look forward to every visit we have with them, I get to learn about a different life than the fortunate one I have lived here in the USA.
Now here’s the truth! Casey has ZERO experience in ballroom dancing, the only dancing she claims to have is “to dance until the bar/club closes. So this will be the biggest challenge to date (Dancing With The Carolina Stars). Her hobbies are simple: wine tasting, food, and board games. She is not a big workout fanatic like some of the other contestants, but she does enjoy water sports like kayaking and swimming.
Casey loves Greenville, she loves the diversity in the community, and loves being involved with charities. She has recently become involved with “The Period Project” and Senior Action. She enjoys not only raising funds for these projects, but being involved with the people that are a part of it bring her so much joy.
