When Cassie was a kid, she knew she wanted to work with children, and had dreams of owning her business as early as high school. She became a physical therapist specializing in pediatrics. Her business, Children’s Therapy Network, is dedicated to helping families assist their children to reach their highest potential through a holistic and comprehensive therapeutic approach. In 2007, she took WEV’s SET course and joined Thrive in Five in 2011. In 2012, the business was in danger of closing due to some emergency funding needs, and a WEV loan helped her cover the expenses and stay open. Cassie’s business generates over $1 million in sales each year and has over 20 employees.
