Katie Cassetta

After my first year of college, I volunteered at an orphanage in Nepal where Prakash (now director of CASD Nepal) was the manager. In 2014 he asked me to join CASD as an ambassador and within a year we raised enough money to build our first water pipeline.

I was raised in Connecticut but left the East Coast for school and then a cattle ranch in Wyoming. Colorado is my home now, where I’m a Senior Associate with the Aspen Institute.

I’m an outdoors enthusiast with a background in cross-cultural psychology.

I am so thankful for my time spent in Nepal. Even in those times of great loss and devastation, the people of Nepal came together to welcome us into their communities.

The camaraderie and resources we have developed worldwide continue to support our thriving mission. I am honored to be a part of CASD USA.

I am a Professional Civil Engineer with an insatiable thirst to explore and support our international community. I was on vacation in Myanmar when the earthquakes hit Nepal, and through a miracle of positive intention and the power of this team we have created something special with our partners. I have said that our parter organization, CASD-Nepal, is the most productive and impressive non-profit that I have ever worked with, and I have worked with many.

I love this crazy world and I am always adventuring in it. I am a mountaineer, surfer, traveler, and musician. My professional background is in business.

I love what we do and I love how we do it. We work really hard, we play really hard, and we commit ourselves to our brothers and sisters in Nepal. I am so proud to call myself a founding member of the CASD team.
