Cassie was born in Michigan, and relocated to Myrtle Beach in 2004. Her work days are spent as the Director of Smokingpipes' Merchandizing department, facilitating the data entry, photography, and copywriting teams and liaising between the company's other departments. In her free time, she's a dedicated wife and mother, who is obsessed with cooking (particularly crockpot meals) and clearance shopping. Along with her husband, Russ, and three children, she travels frequently, with an emphasis on taking cruises — their favorite so far being a voyage to Alaska.
