While earning her degree, she played for the UT Women’s Water Polo team, volunteered with campus organization StandOUT, and was a Research Assistant to Dr. Pujols under Dr. Meston in the Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory. Cassidy graduated with her BA in Psychology in 2012.  

Currently, Cassidy is seeking an MA in Counseling with dual licensure while working full time with a local communications firm. As Outreach Chair for the Texas Exes Pride Network , Cassidy strives to build a strong network for LGBTQIA Texas Exes and hopes to promote overall good vibes in the queer and allied community. She is extremely passionate in these goals and continues to be driven by the triumphs and shortcomings seen by the queer community.
