Cassie Barrett
Mentor
Carolina Memorial Sanctuary
Determined, Caring, Fierce
Deeply listening to and seeing others.
Being a girl/young woman is SO difficult. It's an awkward time in life when so much is changing and you're trying to figure out the "rules" and your place in the world. I want to help support, encourage, and EMPOWER young women through their journey.
Since she was a kid, Cassie has felt a natural connection to death and a deep desire to serve others. Feeling drawn to providing comfort and companionship to the dying, her interest in death work grew into a profession and she is currently the Director of Operations at Carolina Memorial Sanctuary, a conservation and green cemetery located in the Asheville area, where in addition to helping manage the business, she digs graves, gives tours, and assists with burials.
