My name is Cassi Strain. I grew up in Lake Havasu City, AZ, moved to Boulder in the Summer of 2015, and started at CU Boulder in July 2016. I recently completed my doctorate in Higher Education Leadership and have been in Higher Ed since 2005. My Top 5 Strengths are Achiever, Relator, Responsibility, Individualization, and Learner. I love to bake and crochet, and I have an obsession with shoes – last count my collection was up to 295 pairs.
