Hi I'm Cassie

I live in Wisconsin. I'm a pharmacist, the wife of a Navy SEAL, the mother of 2 daughters & a step-son, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 3rd generation Arizona native. I love the desert but love my husband more. So, when he wanted to move to Wisconsin last year, we found new jobs, packed up, and drove against the U-Haul stream. His son lives here, so that (and the winters) is what brought us. We met in pharmacy school. I was intrigued with his military experience--my dad told me SEALS were the toughest men alive. He had never met a girl that served a Mormon mission in Korea and then went back for more (to teach English). He thought I just might be able to keep up with him. Our first date was for a hot air balloon ride. Fast-forward 15 years, and we now have two beautiful daughters, a dog, and a few other small animals at any given time (birds, fish, rats, etc). We love to travel, especially to locations where we can scuba dive. We also love to camp in our 5th wheel and ride ATVs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon by a life-long Mormon father and convert mother. I first relied on their testimonies, but as I grew, my faith grew. I learned for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I gained an understanding of different aspects of the gospel at different times during my youth. For example, I came to believe that I was truly a daughter of God with a divine nature at age 12. My love and understanding of my Savior, Jesus Christ, developed while studying the New Testament at age 19. In my early 20s, I came to understand the power of The Book of Mormon and its ability to change lives. My beliefs give me confidence and hope. I know that my life has purpose, and that I am never alone.

How I live my faith

At church, I serve in the young women's organization. We meet on Sundays for church and on Tuesdays for activities. My calling takes a lot of time and energy, but I really enjoy it. The girls are amazing. They are so busy with school and extra-curricular activities, but they make time for church. They know it is important. They live with unimaginable pressures, but they are steadfast in their beliefs and standards. While it is my job to watch over and strengthen the girls, I am the one who is blessed to associate with such virtuous young women.
