Patient Care Advocate, Cassie Velazquez, MPTh
Cassie grew up in the great mitten state! While her family moved around a lot, Michigan is the place she considers home. Though she is new to the Lehigh Valley, she has fallen in love with the Allentown Farmer’s Market, the South Mountain trails, and all the events hosted at the Emmaus triangle.
She has had a heart for people since a young age, which lead her to study ministry at Indiana Wesleyan University. In 2015, she graduated as a double major with degrees in Christian Ministry and Biblical Literature. She went on to continue her education at IWU and graduated with her Master’s of Practical Theology in 2017. Her desire to help people and meet the needs of others has lead her to a variety of service-related jobs, including working as a children’s pastor, a nursing home activities coordinator, and a residential care staff member at a non-profit home for victims of sexual trafficking. Thanks to these experiences, Cassie has developed a passion for caring for people through a holistic approach. She came to Abundant Health Chiropractic eager to learn about physical health and help people in their journey to living a healthy, fulfilled life.
When she’s not at the office, Cassie enjoys hiking with her husband, snuggling her two step-daughters, and working to start her own non-profit that’s dedicated to coaching people towards holistic health. Some of her favorite things are black coffee, the color red, baby elephants, and Michigan State University football.
