She's a corporate escapee who now lives and works from her idyllic lifestyle property overlooking the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. She's a mid-lifer who wants more from her work life than to go work, grit her teeth and bear it. She wants to work with joy, passion, purpose, and fulfillment - and she still wants to pay the bills! She's grateful to say that she's achieved all of those desires, and more. Through her books and services, she is looking forward to helping you achieve those things too. Cassandra's been a travel manager, recruitment consultant, outplacement consultant, Human Resources manager, leadership coach, therapist, and change catalyst and a wide range of other roles working in large multi-national corporations and not-for-profit organizations.

Equally satisfying to her is that she's been able to share the knowledge she has gained. Over the years she has helped thousands of people from diverse backgrounds and circumstances find or create work they love, and to enjoy their lives. Her journey and lessons learned are shared in her book "Mid-life Career Rescue: How to confidently leave a job you hate, and start living a life you love before it's too late."
