Having grown up with the support of a

"village", Cassandra was encouraged to grow and stimulated her imagination. She

remembers that her village put education was at the top of the list. As far as they were concerned no dream was too big, the possibilities were endless, because if you had a dream (education/good job) and believed in your dreams, and in God then, nothing or no one could dim your light.

She loves being able to assist women with their poised, polished, "put-together" look, developing their confidence and inner beauty. In fact, helping them on their journeys, takes her back to her formative years when she had the support of her "village" to rally around her, to guide her and to provide spiritual guidance.
