Her love of babies, birth, and family empowerment began as a college student at the University of Puget Sound.

She later worked for an Olympia non-profit supporting the families of infants and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays.

Fueled with a renewed passion for child development and the power of home visiting, Cassie began working with Native American families and children through the PAT BabyFACE program. Through her work at the Wa He Lut Indian School with BabyFACE, a passion for partnering with tribal communities was born. This led Cassie to many more years of collaboration and support for Native American families through the South Puget Intertribal Planning agency, an intertribal, nonprofit consortium serving the Chehalis, Nisqually, Shoalwater Bay, Skokomish and Squaxin Island Tribes to promote and enhance the prosperity of their Tribal Communities.
