    I studied journalism
    I had a minor in criminal justice
    I graduated from Northwest Missouri State with my BA in journalism in May of 1996 and then I graduated with an MS in journalism from the University of Kansas in December of 1998.
    Jobs. Well, I love teaching, so it’s first. Next would be a news reporter for a newspaper, followed by a copy editor position.
    Well, I’ve been married almost 15 years to Gene Cassell, who is the Sports Information Director at Washburn. We have two boys, Jacob, 8, and Jared, 6. I spent a lot of time being a mom, which is why I leave work most days at 3:30 p.m to pick up kids. I am active with my church and the Boy Scouts. When I am not chasing boys or grading papers, I love to read just about anything.

      My top three jobs: my first is sports public relations with either a university like KU or a pro team like the Miami Heat. My second is non profit public relations with an organization like the Red Cross, American Heart Association or It Gets Better Project. My third is copy editor of a magazine like Rolling Stone.
      I’m married and live in Lawrence (drive to Topeka and ESU online). I am currently doing an internship with the Topeka RoadRunners. In my spare time I like to do special effects make-up.
