Cassandra McShepard 

She will be our Mistress of Ceremonies this Sunday at our 36th anniversary Gala! Ever since she was a little  girl Cassandra McShepard  wanted to be a designer.  At 11 years old she  started sewing clothes for herself,  and by her late teens  she was designing  clothes for others.

A mere 20 years of age,  she rented a small boutique  space and opened her  first atelier, and by 23 it  was time to pursue a bigger  dream of designing  fabulous one-of-a-kind  garments for entertainers.

She relocated to California, and inside 6 months she was designing  exclusively for singer and actress Phyllis Hyman.

Her client list would eventually boast the likes of Nancy Wilson,  The Manhattans, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Loose Ends,  Abbey Lincoln, Glenn Jones, Allison Williams, Cherelle, The  Whisperers, and journalist Soledad O’Brien

However designer clothing would not be the only thing that  Cassandra would create. In a life by her own design she is a  writer, motivational speaker, Spokesperson for The Wisconsin  Alzheimer’s Institute, jazz vocalist, personal trainer, and a  radio and television personality. She is currently co-hosting the  smash hit television chat fest REAL MILWAUKEE, which airs  live weekdays on FOX6 from 9-10am.
