Cass grew up in Chihuahua, Mexico and Chattanooga, Tennessee. She graduated from Hamilton Baptist College in 2014 with her Bachelor's Degree in Theology. Through college and living abroad she found a love for helping people and giving a voice to the voiceless. She began doing prison in-reach in Mexico and during college. She then went to work for the Chattanooga Rescue Mission, where she fell in love with non-profit work and realized her calling for making Chattanooga a better place for the unhoused, discriminated and underserved communities. She continues her work in activism in the LGBTQ community and her work as Communications and Marketing Manager at Project Return. Cassi is honored to be part of what The Brave Effect is doing to change the world, one person at a time.
