Cassie Weaver, M.A.

Cassie Weaver received her M.A. in Sport and Exercise Psychology in May 2018 from Minnesota State University, Mankato. She joined Mentally Strong Consulting with ample experience as a mental performance coach, health and nutrition coach, and collegiate volleyball coach. She is currently completing her CMPC certification.

Weaver has spent the past four years as a NCAA collegiate volleyball coach at the Division II and Division III level. She played collegiate volleyball for Concordia University, St. Paul (2010-2014) where her team won four NCAA Division II National Volleyball Championships. Prior to college, Weaver was a USAG Level 10 gymnast at TAGS South in Apple Valley, Minnesota. She competed at regional and national meets in the all-around and was a MN State Bars Champion in 2007.

Cassie also completed an internship as a mental performance coach at IMG Academy, an elite training facility, in Bradenton, Florida. At IMG, she developed and led team workshops with elite athletes of all ages. She primarily worked with football, tennis, lacrosse, baseball, basketball, and soccer athletes. Throughout her internship, she learned about specific mental strategies and tools that parents can use to help themselves and their athletes develop a high-performance mindset.

Cassie leads team mental performance workshops with high-school and collegiate teams, and collaborates with coaches and/or athletic directors to help their respective athletes gain a high-performance edge. She also works one-on-one with elite, college, and high school athletes. Cassie finds energy and joy working with these athletes because they are highly driven and are always looking to “level-up” their performances.

Cassie spends her free time staying active outside, participating in adult volleyball tournaments, and taking classes to personally and professionally advance her career. She plans to obtain her Ph. D. in performance psychology.
