“Having a small classroom atmosphere is one of the many perks of learning at Concord; the beautiful scenery I am blessed to see every day makes Concord a perfect learning environment.”
Kasey is a third-generation Mountain Lion and majoring in Biology Pre-Physical Therapy. When she came to Concord, it felt like home. Her foundation for inspiration comes from her supportive family that has always encouraged her to pursue her dreams. Kasey's grandmother fought a battle with cancer for 16 years, and during that time Kasey grew an interest for science and how amazing the human body can be. Her passion began in sophomore year of high school when she was injured playing softball. After intense physical therapy, Kasey returned to the sport that she loved. She then had the aspiration to touch lives and give others the gift of healing. Kasey feels that Concord provides a high quality education with a strong biology program. Once she gets her degree, that will lay the foundation that will allow her to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
