MEET THE HOST & CREATOR: 

My name is Cassandre (pronounced Cassandra) and like you- I’m a woman of many hats. As a mother of 2 young boys, medical doctor, wife, educator, Wellness blogger, and host of the Be Well, Sis Podcast. I’m incredibly passionate about the wellness and self-care practices of Black millennial women.

Shortly after graduating medical school, I became pregnant with my eldest and was made very aware of the things that I put both in and on my body. This became even more important after giving birth to a child with many sensitivities and allergies. In doing my own research, I learned that there was a large gap between what I learned in medical school and what it truly means to be well. Since then, I’ve been on a journey to be well in mind, body, and spirit.

In my quest for knowledge, I quickly realized that we are often underrepresented or alienated in Wellness spaces although we often also suffer the worst medical outcomes compared to our peers.

So, I’ve become dedicated to providing relevant resources that resonate with those of us who feel forgotten. This is my love letter to you.

I’m so glad you’re here. Be well, Sis.



I'm Cassandre!

I'm obsessed with...

MY SKINCARE REGIMEN

MY ORGANIC GARDEN

I'm skincare obsessed and fancy myself an amateur esthetician! Sometimes the only time I get to myself is the 10 minutes alone in the mirror. 

I recently discovered my green thumb and grew a garden full of tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, okra, watermelon, and, bell-peppers.

DIY DECORATING

My home is my sanctuary and the constant organization, rearrangement, and decoration brings me so much happiness.

Note from the Editor

If you know me, you know that I'm damn near allergic to asking for support. So this is an exercise in stepping out of my comfort zone and doing something that I usually actively work against. According to my therapist "growth and confidence are showing up with the discomfort". And because I'm working on both growing and being more confident in my decisions- I've accepted the challenge.
With that being said, ​Be Well, Sis recently earned the opportunity to be part of an accelerator powered by Caress and iFundWomen. The mission of this accelerator is to take promising small businesses led by WOC and teach us how to pitch and launch a successful crowdfunding campaign. It’s been an honor being selected to participate in an accelerator of 30 women chosen out of a pool of 2500. It’s also been A LOT of work and has required soul searching but I am so excited to finally share the results!


As female founders we are grossly underfunded in the VC world- we secured only 2% of venture capital in the U.S. in 2021, the smallest share since 2016. Crowdfunding makes sense for many of us: without going into debt or giving up equity, we get to grow our businesses with the support of the people in our community-like you!

For the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of reflection on what it is that I’d like to create for the women of Be Well, Sis. After a lot of soul searching, late nights and early mornings, in addition to the coaching of @ifundwomen x @caress, I realize that we’re in need of a transformation; and transformation requires capital.

What Does that Mean?

The vision for Be Well, Sis is to go from solely being a podcast but instead transforming into a wellness media company that produces the podcast, digital and in-person events, and a virtual community that centers Black women holistically. Think Create and Cultivate but for Black women’s wellness.
After years of searching for something like this for myself, I’m taking a leap by creating it.

Ok, So How Much?

I have an ambitious goal of $50k for the crowdfunding campaign. It's a large number but I know that I have a generous and supportive community riding with us.

Why That Number?

The majority of the funds will be used to secure a venue and vendors for our first ever in-person wellness Summit. In doing my research, I realize that the amount that I’m crowdfunding for won’t cover the expenses for an in-person event; however, it’ll be enough to pay the deposits to get the ball rolling.
The funds will also be used to hire a team member to help me do the lifting. For the past two years, I’ve done the majority of the work solo- but if we’re going to grow and produce quality content/events, I recognize that I'm going to need some help.

I’ll be sharing more of what that transformation means in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I’d love for you to support the campaign by :

Looking forward to growing with you.
