Cassie McDonald Ross

Dr. Cassie is joining Mindset in the summer of 2024, moving back to the Mitten after a couple years out in the state of Oregon. Her time in Oregon resulted in a lot of personal and professional growth, with many improvements that she is beyond excited to bring back in her service to the Kalamazoo area.

Cassie grew up in Battle Creek, Michigan, graduating with her Bachelors in Mathematics from Olivet College in 2013, then attended Grand Valley State University for her Doctorate of Physical Therapy, graduating in 2017.

Cassie has been a physical therapist since 2017, starting out initially as a general orthopedic physical therapist, quickly diving into the complex world of pelvic health. Her passion for pelvic health has only grown over the years, especially after birthing her own two children. She has a passion for guiding patients through large hormonal shifts – pregnancy, postpartum and menopause – finding joy in assisting patients through pain, incontinence, prolapse, etc. that may be limiting them from living their best life. Cassie’s main goal as a physical therapist is to foster confidence in patients’ ability to manage their own condition and belief in the resilience of their body. Her approach is fitness forward and holistic, through stewardship.

One of Cassie’s most proud attributes is her growth mindset. She is a lifelong learner, always wanting to be better for the benefit of those she serves. She holds a specialist certification in pelvic health (CAPP-Pelvic) through the Academy of Pelvic Health, is a Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist (PCES), ICE-Pelvic Cert through the Institute of Clinical Excellence, and is working on her specialist certification in obstetrics (CAPP-OB) through Academy of Pelvic Health as well.

When not serving patients, you can find Cassie enjoying time with her husband, Josh, and young boys, Graeme and Finn. She completed her first half marathon in March 2024 and loves functional fitness. Her 2024 fitness goal is to be able to perform 3 strict pull-ups!
