After graduation from Susquehanna with a degree in economics, Cassie began her career with City Year, an AmeriCorps program focused on inner-city school education. At City Year, she was a tutor, mentor and after-school coordinator for inner city first- through fifth-graders in Boston. After 10 rewarding months, she looked for a career with the Peace Corps in Nicaragua for her next opportunity to help others. In Nicaragua, she teaches an entrepreneurship class to high school students in which the students form mini-businesses, create a product, write a business plan and compete against other Nicaraguan high school teams. Cassie attributes her success to her education, involvement and experiences abroad at Susquehanna. Her experiences abroad were with a Stein internship in the Czech Republic and a GO Long program in Seville, Spain during her junior year. She also attributes her work with Students in Free Enterprise (now Enactus) to providing her a willingness to combine her passions to help others.
