Cassie specializes in food and beverage writing but also excels in writing about entertainment, lifestyle topics, home gardening, and health.
Cassie is an excellent cook of many types of cuisine that she serves to family and friends. Watching NFL football consumes much of her time in fall and winter, during which she prepares breakfast, lunch and dinner for her guests. Her DVR is bulging with Food Network programs as well as comedies, and competitive reality shows such as Amazing Race. Binging Netflix and Amazon Prime make her smile.
Cassie completed a 4-year BA program and was Undergraduate Assistant to Professor James Reiss in the Creative Writing Department.
From trends in cocktails and culinary techniques to how to season cast iron cookware, how to host a beer tasting party, kids’ brown bag lunch ideas, preparing exquisite leg of lamb, robot bartenders, and the latest celebrity spirits on the market, Cassie transforms these topics into engaging copy that both entertains and informs.
Despite the dramatic focus on nutrition in the past couple decades, Cassie is constantly amazed at the misconceptions of what is actually good for your health, the bizarre trends people embrace without reasoning, and the simple guidelines they ignore. While she’s not an expert on nutrition, her fascination with the subject makes her writing on the topic engaging and entertaining.
Cassie recently became a contributing writer for ApartmentRatings.com. After living in the same San Francisco Bay Area apartment for over 30 years, she has seen the rental scene ebb and flow in gentle waves that welcomed all to tsunami walls that have driven people out of their homes en masse.
Cassie has written many articles on a wide range of topics for various websites. She wrote 74 articles that generated over 2.17M views and published 16 of her articles with 374,774 views.
