Cassie is an alum of Butler University (Go Dawgs!) and earned a M.A. in English and a certificate in Latin American and Latino Studies from the University of Louisville. She enjoys running, especially in nearby Cherokee Park and through the trails in Bernheim Forest. Ask her sometime about running a half-marathon through Bernheim!
