Cassie Pusey, Co-CEO of My Brilliant People, received her BS in Psychology from Texas A&M in 1994. Upon graduation, Cassie began her professional career as a consultant with Accenture’s talent and organization performance group. Over the next 20 years she worked with a variety of clients in the health and public service industry, as well as internal Accenture teams, to successfully navigate major technology implementations and increase employee performance. Throughout her career at Accenture, Cassie experienced the greatest satisfaction in championing employee engagement programs and coaching individuals to achieve their personal definitions of success.

In 2011, Cassie embarked upon a self-directed leadership education to hone her abilities beyond the point where traditional corporate training programs had taken her. Reading the works of top leadership authors, listening to success talks daily, and being mentored by a phenomenal leadership coach changed Cassie’s life so profoundly that she resolved to launch a business of her own to provide life-changing leadership education to hungry students like herself. Three years into the journey, Cassie developed a sufficient following to close the chapter on her Accenture career and focus full time on developing other leaders.

Whitney Nelson, Co-CEO of My Brilliant People is a dynamic leader and entrepreneur with over 20 years experience in marketing and management.  A creative and entrepreneurial spirit, she successfully established her own residential design firm in 1997 after receiving her Bachelor of Science in Family & Consumer Sciences from Texas State University. During her 10 years in the design industry, Whitney began competing in triathlons and adventure races where she became incredibly passionate about health, wellness and the outdoors.  In 2007, she accepted a position as Field Marketing Manager for Texas with the sports nutrition icon, CLIF Bar & Company, where she worked with an amazing team of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts for nearly 10 years. Whitney attributes her success at CLIF Bar to the self-directed leadership education she and Cassie now bring to the world through public and private workshops, trainings and retreats.
