Cassiday’s Kick-Ass Chick of the Week


I’m Cassiday from Spencer’s Neighborhood honoring local kick ass chicks! What’s a kick ass chick? I’m on the hunt for women who are breaking barriers, breaking the mold, or maybe just breaking their back carrying others through life! Whether it’s the selfless mom who sacrifices everything for her kids, the woman making a name for herself in a traditionally male industry, or the neighbor you see doing something kind every day and asking for nothing in exchange, I want to know about her!

Spencer’s Neighborhood wants to salute and celebrate kick ass chicks in the St. Louis Metro, and we need YOUR help to find them.
