Hi! Thank you for taking a moment to learn about our family! We are Mike and Cassie. We have been married for 14 years and have a 7-year-old daughter named Riley. We recently moved to Boise after living overseas for the past 12 years. We chose to live in Boise because of the great family environment, schools and having family nearby. We love it here!
Cassie went to college in California and earned a degree in Agriculture Business/Marketing. She also has her teaching credential in elementary education and taught kindergarten and 1st grade in California and in Mexico.
Mike went to college in California and the University of Pittsburg. He has been in the construction and development industry for over 20 years. We have a business in Fiji and we travel there often. We also have a business in the small beach community of Sayulita, Mexico. Through work we travel to Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia, always learning so much about the culture and people in these places. Our daughter has had the great opportunity to experience these places with us. We love traveling as a family and want to continue to give our children experiences with other places and cultures.
Mike travels back and forth to his current project in Fiji, which will be completed next year. Cassie is involved with marketing and other aspects of the project and is fortunate to be able to work from home in Boise.
Mike loves anything to do with the ocean!! He has been surfing since he was a kid and is now teaching Riley to surf. He also loves to fish, scuba dive, and snorkel. When he is not on the water he loves to mountain bike and has now started skiing. Cassie likes to paddle board, do yoga, hike with our dog Ralph, bake, and is always reading a new book. Riley is fun loving, kind and thoughtful and has a big imagination. She is bilingual and fluent in Spanish. She loves music and is always dancing and singing. She is She has been wanting to be a big sister for so long. She often talks about how she will be a helper and how she will even change diapers!
We can’t pretend to know the emotions you are feeling right now. You are courageous and brave in so many ways! It would be an honor to get to know you.
