The Accidental Iowan, Cassie, is a mom and higher education professional. In 2011, she finished graduate school and moved to Iowa for a job opportunity. She didn’t know it then, but Iowa would become her home. In the last six years, she has put down her roots here. Since 2015, she has bought and sold two houses, renovated a home, moved three times (including twice across the US), and changed jobs multiple times. Oh! And she had a baby too!

Cassie enjoys writing about her everyday adventures. After all, her life is never boring! In the past few years, Cassie has become very proficient at moving, home improvement, and gardening. She is passionate about mental health issues, specifically postpartum depression and access to mental health services.

When she isn’t buried in a book, you can find her playing with her daughter and pup.
