Actor, Singer, Dancer
I am a recent graduate of Millikin University in Decatur, IL where I earned my BFA in Musical Theatre and a Minor in Dance! I grew up in Johnson City, Tennessee where I Iearned to love three things above all others: Theatre, Dolly Parton, and Cows. I will be spending the 2019-2020 season at Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach, FL where I am a current Performance Apprentice and I could not be more thrilled to get to call Florida my current home!

I'm super excited to announce that I will get to perform on the Millikin stage one last time before graduating in May! I have been cast in the ensemble of Chelsea Sunrise! It is a brand new musical by Murray Foster and Mike Ford that Millikin is workshopping and staging while it is being developed! Performances will be March 22-24.
New Musicals Immersion
January 18th, 2019
I headed back to Millikin a few weeks ago to start working on this year's New Musicals Workshop Immersion. This year the immersion was based around Disney and I got the opportunity to spend a few days working with Michael Kooman and Chris Dimond on their music from Disney Junior's Vampirina! I got to learn about singing in a recording studio and about voice over techniques! Then we headed down to Orlando, Florida to spend a few days in Disney World meeting with casting directors, attending workshops, and, of course, running around the parks!

Look how far the world has come! Cassandra's nickname among her classmates while in London was "Genius Who Fixed The Printer" and now this tech genius has figured out the internet!
'A Bovine Line' Cow Dance Milked For All It's Worth!
December 6th, 2018
The time for my Dance Minor Choreography Project came along and I decided to make my dream dance. I got lots of positive feedback about my musical theatre cow dance inspired by the work of Gillian Lynne and Michael Bennett. You can watch the final dress recording RIGHT NOW in my little video section and keep an eye out for production photos and a better recording which are all coming soon!
All Educated and Graduated
May 19th, 2019
I am completely amazed that the end to my 4 years came so quickly and that I’ve officially graduated with my BFA in Musical Theatre and a Minor in Dance! It was a hard journey at times and have given me so much as a performer and as a person and I will cherish these 4 years with all my heart ❤️.
I Graduated, Now What?
May 29th, 2019
I am super excited to announce that my first job post-graduation will be working as one of 4 Performance Apprentices at Riverside Theatre In Vero Beach, FL for the next year! Ever since August I have been feeling that I wanted to move to FL after graduation but I’d been being pushed to move to the Chicago market and had resigned myself to that until I was offered the job at Riverside! I am so thankful for this opportunity to try my hand at teaching some kiddos, to make some theatre, and to see how FL treats me!
