Member Profile: Cassandra Overby

It gives us great pleasure to introduce you to Cassandra Overby! Cassandra joined us in mid-2016 and jumped into the mix right away. These days you can find her hosting monthly Writers Lunch sessions at the office, and she’s currently a part of our great team of Community Cultivators. We hope you’ll enjoy reading a bit more about her!

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about hiking (I always seek out hills when I’m stressed) and country dancing (especially the two step and cowboy cha-cha) and traveling (especially in Germany and France). But I don’t like to travel just to see new things. I want travel to change me; I want it to make me a better person. And I love helping other people approach their travels the same way.

What are you working on right now?

I’m working on several things! I am writing a book for Mountaineers Books called “Exploring Europe on Foot,” which is expected to hit bookstores in August 2018. I also freelance for magazines—my specialty is active travel stories. And I edit for magazines and companies as well.

What brought you to Office Nomads?

I came to Office Nomads because I was going crazy at home. There was no one to talk to and I was driven nearly crazy by loneliness. I knew I had to do something to get regular interaction. I did some research on coworking spots and ended up at Office Nomads—I knew right away that it was the right place for me. It was a gut feeling. I love how friendly everyone is and how it really is a community. I look forward to coming in and having people to talk to—people that I know.

Got a fun Office Nomads story to share with us?

Jacob came in one morning with clappers that he found outside (you know, the “clap on, clap off” lights!). He asked if anyone wanted them and I was stoked—I’d just been talking about getting a couple the week before. Talk about serendipity!

What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?

I was named after a heroine (a CEO, of all things) in a romance novel that my mom read when she was pregnant with me.
