I have a background in mental health work. I believe mindset plays a huge role in goal setting and performance as an athlete. I will look at more than your physical training metrics and take all aspects of your life into account when developing your training program. Support, rest, and stress management are all topics I go over when I start working with an athlete.


I have been a personal trainer since 2014 and have worked with a number of gyms while living in Tennessee. I also coached the Tennessee running club in 2016 at the University of TN in Knoxville. I have been coaching runners since 2018 with a focus on the military community while I was an active duty Marine. I currently work with pregnant and postpartum athletes in returning to running safely.


I am a new twin mom to Liam and Asher! I am currently returning to ultra marathons and I’m also training for my first 70.3 triathlon. I started running in 2012 as a way to maintain fitness while I was in college. Due to my competitive spirit, I fell in love with the challenge of distance running and seeing how far my mind and body could go. One distance led to another and I found myself doing my first 100 miler in 2017. The 50 mile is my favorite distance and I love crewing and volunteering at ultras as much as I love running them. I am a masters level social worker when I’m not coaching and I am Marine Corps Veteran.

I’m originally from Knoxville and it’s where I got my running start, so I know the trails and running scene well in my hometown city. I am currently in New Bern for military orders, but I travel home to Knoxville often and participate in the awesome running community there as much as I can.


I train based on Rate of Perceived Exertion and heart rate. I also incorporate total body fitness and injury prevention into my programming.


I have completed multiple ultra marathons as well as self supported efforts. My favorite accomplishment was a self supported run through the Grand Canyon.

    I highly recommend Cassie as a running coach, especially for postpartum runners!

    Cassie’s been coaching me for about 2.5 months now. Before finding Cassie I was desperate to run again after having a baby, but didn’t know what to do and experienced pain when I tried to run. Thanks to Cassie, I’m finally back to consistent and pain-free running! Cassie understands postpartum athletes, not just because she’s been through it herself, but also because she’s specifically studied how to support and coach women who want to be active postpartum. I’m so grateful that I found Cassie, and even though I initially got a coach to help with returning to my run routine postpartum, with a goal of just being able to run 30 minutes, I will continue to work with her toward my other running goals. Her coaching plans are always clear and consistent, and she’s flexible and supportive when I need to adjust something. When she was in town, we even met up for a run that matched my plan! Sign up with Cassie, your running will improve!

    I’ve been working with Cassie for a little over a month and could not recommend her coaching services more! I came as a beginner-intermediate runner with a marathon and a few shorter distance races under my belt. Up until this point, all of my training has been self-guided but I began to notice a plateau in my performance as I was not able to push to the pace I wanted achieve, especially at longer distances. As soon as I joined Cassie’s team, she immediately diagnosed areas where I needed to focus to build up my running fundamentals and helped me stay accountable to a plan to help me get there. Additionally, her strength plans have really helped me feel like a stronger runner and I’ve noticed less soreness/aches after my runs as a result of doing the strength training in tandem with my runs. She knows how to tailor plans to busy schedules and his super responsive for whenever I have a question/something comes up. I can’t wait to continue working with her and seeing how I perform on race day!
