Cassie attended Malone College, Canton, OH from
1984 – 1987. Her focus of study was in biology, chemistry and secondary education. She then worked for over 20 years in the construction industry as an award-winning kitchen and bath designer. In 2009, Cassie graduated from Keiser University, Orlando, FL, with an AS degree in Massage Therapy and a renewed passion for anatomy/physiology and human health and wellness.
Cassie was raised on a farm in rural Ohio. She has an innate affinity for nature and the natural cycles of life. As well as working on the farm, she was a competitive Track and Field athlete from an early age, which developed a heightened awareness of the physical body and how it works. These factors combined with the direction of her healing work made for a congruous progression into Five Element Chinese Theory and acupuncture. She received her Master’s degree from The Academy of Five Element Acupuncture in September 2012. She soon thereafter became Nationally Board Certified by the NCCA and a licensed acupuncturist in the State of New Hampshire and Maine. During this time she also began her post-graduate studies with Laura Barnard Stelmok in Rockland Maine. These studies involve clinical observation and on-going supervision of her private practice. Because of her participation in the work of The Unseen Hand and her advanced training, she has chosen to remain in Maine to further study with Laura.
