Cassandra has struggled with her identity, experienced divorce, and balanced a full-time job while single parenting and has never once allowed these experiences to define her. Her resilience has inspired her to share her life’s journey with others. Because of her lifelong passion to serve, she has founded New Wine Consulting where she serves as President and Certified Professional Life Coach specializing in personal development and leadership coaching. Cassandra was born to lead, but continuously sharpened her skills throughout her government career by attaining extensive leadership training. She displays her leadership skills in both her professional and personal life. Her leadership workshops discuss such topics as leadership styles, conflict resolution and team building techniques. As part of her personal development training, she also facilitates a workshop on basic financial tips.
The business name was derived from the scripture Matthew 9:17. In that scripture, the message Jesus presented to John’s disciples was a simple one: You can’t put new wine (ideas) into old wineskins (mindsets), and you can’t get new results with old behaviors. New Wine Consulting’s mission is to empower individuals to bring balance, transformation, and achievement into all areas and aspects of their lives addressing the needs of the whole person (mental, physical, and spiritual). Cassandra believes it is her life’s purpose is to empower, motivate, and transform negative thinking to overcome life’s trials. Through her one-on-one coaching sessions and workshops, she will share her journey of transformation from pain to purpose to motivate others to do the same.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
