Be known for your kindness and grace.

My Story:


My plans for the future are simple. I want to help influence the next generation and the following to be well rounded human beings - to live life to the fullest. Life is too short to not spread anything but love. I learned this at a young age when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Instead of loving and helping her I turned cold. I didn’t know how to react. So all I did was push away all of my problems. Thankfully my mom recovered and is now 100% cancer free. I was sent to a leadership camp that changed my life forever. We talked about our biggest regrets in life and how they shaped us into who we are today. I didn’t give my mom the support she needed when she was sick. Ever since that day I have treated everyone I came across with a smiling, kind face. You don’t know anyone’s situations or what they are going through, so treat everyone with kindness. It’s as simple as that! I love my mom and tell her atleast 6 times a day. Our time is limited so why not spend it loving? I want to inspire kids the way I was at that camp. I want to be the example for them to follow.

Favorite part of working with PAT+CASSIE:
