Cassandra’s approach to coaching is fueled by her desire to build connections. Performing and coaching have been her passions since her childhood growing up on a farm. The fifth of six children, she struggled to find her own identity and spent much of her time alone. She discovered that music and creativity were where she found her connection to herself.
