In 2004 Cassandra graduated Ohio University with a BFA in classical Theatre. With her focus being in Children’s Theatre, Movement & Puppetry she started touring and teaching with the Columbus Children’s Theatre that same year. In 2006 she decided to move and pursue her acting career in Chicago and acted at various theatre’s including Redmoon Theater in which she was accepted into an experimental rigorous year long project involving movement and puppetry which then became an in house production. Because movement became her concentration in Theatre her Yoga practice and warm ups got much more extensive. So she took the leap and in 2009 she attended The Temple of Kriya Yoga Chicago and studied Hatha Yoga & Meditation. Cassandra graduated with a 200hr Teacher Training Certification. During Yoga school she was brewing up an all natural Soap business in her basement apartment in Lincoln Square. While making Soap and Teaching Yoga downtown Cassandra and her husband decided to embark on a dream they shared. In 2010 they moved to Nebraska from the Windy City and opened a Soap Shop that also doubled as a project to raise awareness to save the bees and pollinators. They raised chickens, connected to local farmers and sourced most of their ingredients from them, they learned about sustainable farming, beekeeping, organic gardening and pollinator friendly practices. During this time Cassandra held weekly meditations at her Soap Shop and taught Yoga & Meditation at a studio in a private residence. In 2014 they left their prairie landscape for the Salt Life after a transformative experience connecting with Dolphins while kayaking in the Gulf Ocean of Florida. Cassandra experienced a deep dive into her spiritual path when she was intuitively told one evening to go out and purchase Angel Tarot Cards. From there she was certified as an Angel Carder Reader™ and worked at a Crystal and Metaphysical Shop in Jacksonville and St. Augustine doing readings for clients and teaching them about Angels. Cassandra had many transformative and enlightening experiences deepening her Yoga and Meditation practice by the ocean, exploring natural springs, hiking and connecting to wildlife, and spending time at the first Marian Shrine in the U.S. Our Lady of La Leche in St. Augustine. It was there where she experienced many miracles and had a vision of Mary that changed the course of her life forever. She also began making energetic Angel Aura Mist’s™ to add to her product line that she sold at outdoor markets and local shops. In 2019 the birth of her Son brought her family back full circle to her Hometown of Mentor, Ohio. Since living here she has enjoyed presenting at Psychic Fairs and doing Angel Readings at a local Crystal Healing Shop. Cassandra is grateful be a part of the Branches of Wellness Team and to share her offerings and experiences with this beautiful community.
