I am Cassia Connors, a 28 year old licensed professional engineer from Oklahoma. I am currently attending the U of U online MBA program. I grew up in a small town and received my mechanical engineering degree at the University of Arkansas.  I’ve lived in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Kansas and just recently moved to Utah with my husband of 6 months.  Utah has been a wonderful place to live with a plethora of year-round, outdoor activities.  Park City has been and outstanding place to train for triathlons.

My husband, Brian, inspired me to begin racing when I watched him complete an Ironman triathlon.  I raced in my first half marathon a year ago and have completed two half Iron distance triathlons and one Olympic distance triathlon since. The sport has become addictive and I look forward to racing in four half distance triathlons this year!

Professionally, I work in corporate sales for an industrial water treatment company. I usually travel every week an average of 3-4 days.  I have to be creative with my training schedule to fit it in before flights, at hotels or between meetings.  I guess I still felt as though I had too much time on my hands (ha!), so I enrolled to begin my MBA at the University of Utah this semester.  With the rest of my downtime I enjoy traveling with Brian, especially to see the National Parks in the area.
