Cassie is a professional actor and plus size model. She is a former national titleholder for the World's Miss Tourism system as World's Miss Tourism Beauty 2018. She is the current 2018 Miss State of Illinois Sunburst Queen.
Cassie is currently splitting her time between living in Vermont and working Chicago as an actor and model.
She is a graduate from Illinois State University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude and from the Honor’s College.
Cassie began competing in pageants at the age of 19 to help with her auditioning skills for the theatre and because the thought of pageants terrified her. She has always admired how girls who compete in pageants can get up on stage and smile while being judged and wanted to see if she could do that herself. Pageants have helped her find herself and self-love and she is ready to conquer anything she does. By competing in pageants, Cassie can now walk into an audition room with confidence!
Pageants have opened up so many opportunities for Cassie including walking for Mac Duggal at Mac Duggal Fashion Week, World of Prom and New York Fashion Week. She also has modeled for Carrafina in Chicago, Roz La Kelin in Atlanta, and Addilyn Rose (online boutique). She is represented by Everything Formals Model Management and Paige Talent.
Recently, Cassie has been cast in three movies and she is very excited to pursue this part of her career!
