Cassie was born in 1982 during a time when doctors still recommended her being institutionalized. I still have a hard time taking advice from detached western doctors. She attended Brevard County Schools from the age of 1 until she reached 22. Where she mainstreamed at Palm Bay High School and graduated in 2004 with a special degree.
She is very active in Special Olympics and Melbourne's Special Spotlight Theatre for several years. She has assisted with audio and video set up for several different small events for Joy Productions. Cassie is very attentive with others, is extremely helpful, and loves learning new things.
