Cassie

Hi everyone, Cassie here! I'm a 21 year old girl from central PA who was born to travel. Every place I've been to is stuck in my heart forever- from the giant Redwoods of California to the mountains of the Adirondacks and the rocks of Utah. I'll be skipping out on my graduation for my BSN and setting out on my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail March of 2018. Follow my journey!
