Dr. Cassandra (Cassie) Keesee of Fortitude Health & Performance joins the Ideal Wellness team as a native from Clawson, Michigan. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Illinois University (EIU) in Charleston, IL. While attending EIU, she was a member of the women’s soccer team competing at the NCAA Division 1 level.
During her college career, Dr. Cassie had multiple unsuccessful hip surgeries. The unfortunate circumstances forced Dr. Cassie to seek alternative care. Seeing the difference chiropractic care made in her own life, she went on to earn her Doctorate of Chiropractic Medicine from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida.
Dr. Cassie has experience treating a wide variety of painful conditions, as well as experience in sports medicine and injury prevention. She is proficient in many chiropractic techniques that help her patients get well.

Elisa first found herself on a yoga mat in 2004 while still a full-time student studying Massage Therapy. She was looking for a yoga experience and genuinely wanted to know more about this mystical ancient yoga stuff. She began practicing with a seasoned and incredibly knowledgeable Hatha instructor, who also happened to be in her 70's and still standing on her head! With the demands of school, work, 3 kids, and rural living, she began craving time on her mat. Her yoga practice helped her navigate the struggles of life.
In 2008, Elisa studied Thai Yoga Massage in Cleveland, Ohio (her home state! Go Bucks!). She wanted to blend yoga with her Massage practice and this work does that beautifully! In 2015, she dove head first into a 200HR Yoga Teacher Training in Palm Beach Gardens. This for me was my practice coming full circle. She loves implementing yoga poses and breathwork into her Massage Practice.
