Cassie Smeltzer


About Me

I am a constant student of culture. I was exposed to many cultural differences while growing up in Northern, Indiana. Born in a large family, I was the middle of three children, prior to my adopted sister and autistic adopted brother joining the family.

I spent an enormous amount of my formative years experiencing the cultural variances of surrounding communities while appreciating how my family’s dynamics often made us the home and safe haven for people in need. With my parents breaking free of abusive childhoods, I was raised in a Christian environment. I was taught the value of servant leadership at a very young age.

My drive stems from my self-employed father, as I obtained my cosmetology license to pay for college. I got a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in Sociology in 2010. I graduated from Tulane University the following year, while spending a semester in India, with a Masters in Social Work and a never-ending love for New Orleans beignets and the expressive brilliance of brass bands.

I has been a servant to youth and families involved in the juvenile justice system, sick and homebound elders, homeless Veterans, parents and children involved with the department of children and family services, youth and adults with addictions, special needs youth and everyday people who just need an inviting ear and warm smile from severe trauma to managing everyday issues.

Schedule an appointment with me and ask what she loves most about New Orleans. Start your session by enjoying her funny theory of how it’s the only city where the clarinet is a pleasant instrument.
