Kassandra Strout began writing at around 4 years old, as soon as she grasped the letters of the alphabet but before understanding how to create words (these early works remain indecipherable). Writing instantly became a passion and creative outlet for Kassie, and she realized early on that she feels at her best with a pen in hand.
After graduating from Bates College in 2012 (where she majored in English and minored in Rhetoric), she contemplated a career in the legal field after moving back to Milbridge. During this time, she met fellow Bobcat Nicole through a mutual friend. When the opportunity arose, Kassie decided to join Breaking Even and start flexing those creative muscles again. There was also the added bonus of building a life in the area she loved, and being close to family.
While at Breaking Even, Kassie has been learning all about website and social media management, an probably her favorite thing, ghostwriting blogs and email newsletters.
Kassie lives in Bar Harbor, and is taking a brief break from running marathons to hang out with her baby, who prefers hiking.
