Cassie graduated Cum Laude from East Tennessee State University in Exercise Physiology and Sports Medicine. She has always had a passion for Physical Health, Mental Health and Nutrition. She is certified in Permaculture and plans on using this skill to expand on the immense amounts of agricultural land use this area has to offer. Permaculture is an ethical design science.

It works for the intimate small space of human habitat right up to the broad, damaged ecosystems which can be repaired with the design science system.
