Early life

During her teen years, she started up a baker's company with her mother called Cooplex Cookies & Candies. Cooplex Cookies & Candies would run from 2001 to 2005. Her career began to flourish when she landed a job as a fashion designer's assistant at Effie's Heart. Cassey went on to work as a Pilates instructor at 24 Hr Fitness, Town Sports International, and Equinox before becoming the CEO of oGorgeous, a fitness wear fashion company, and the founder of blogilates.com.
