Cassie Young is one of our co-founders and managing directors of GMM. She lives in Harrison West and graduated from Ohio State University with master’s degrees in social work and public policy. Previously, she ran research trials to improve government programs to work better for citizens. Now, she is a managing director at Grey Matter Media and the engagement coordinator for Matter News. She co-founded GMM due to a deep desire to improve the lives of all people and a strong belief that that cannot happen until people are empowered to better understand and be active in their communities through good information, stories, and thoughtful discussion on local issues. She recently co-founded a multimedia arts festival called Cloud City.
