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 Self-Employment Training 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.
