Meet Cassie – The Girl Behind the Blog


About Me

My name is Cassie: I’m a 23 year-old recent college graduate (I got my BS and MEng at University of Illinois, go Illini!) that works full-time as an engineer at General Electric. I am passionate about renewable energy and excited that I get to go to work every day and make the world a cleaner and better place.

I also love to explore. Hiking, climbing, and traveling are a must! There are so many more things that I want to do and learn; if you have ideas of things for me to try, let me know! Now that I have graduated I am discovering my passion for traveling. Seeing other cultures and meeting new people has allowed me to reflect on my own life, beliefs, and passions.


I’m a nerd, pescatarian, former athlete trying to get back, and passionate about life! I have endured a lot and am set to live out a purposeful life in all that I do.

 About The Blog

This blog was started after I realized how much I love to explore, but also love my job, and I wanted to share with you how you can get the best of both worlds. I am passionate about my job, but there is more to life. Hopefully this blog can serve as a guide, lesson book, and entertainment of the things I have learned along the way.


The blogs name came about from my first few months at GE working with a lead test engineer. We were setting up a test run and he decided to name it “Cassie’s Big Adventure.” Now I’m on a mission to make sure I live out that adventure.
