Cassi’s Story

Cassi came to Dress for Success Houston as part of our specialized veteran’s outreach program. Cassi served in the US Navy as a Corpsman in Puerto Rico, New Orleans and Cuba where she handled the medical needs for Marines in the field.

Cassi’s story is one we’ve unfortunately heard too many times here at Dress for Success Houston. A woman, who honorably served her country, foundthat even with her military service and leadership experience as a medic in the Navy, she still had to start from square one when returning to civilian life. Rather than be discouraged, Cassi was determined to keep moving forward. She enrolled in Chamberlin College of Nursing to pursue her education and met the challenge head on, graduating Cum Laude.

Once Cassi completed her nursing degree, she came to Dress for Success for that final touch, a suit for her job interview. Cassi says that she was more than impressed with her experience. Not only did she receive professional business attire for her job interview, she gained confidence in her interview skills and perfected her resume. Cassi is now a newlywed, and employed in the position of her dreams as an ER Nurse with Memorial Hermann Northwest, where she says the best part about her job is that every day she gets to help others.
