Kassidy started diving at the age of four, and her sister, Kara, was a diver at Purdue University. Kassidy enjoys sports of all kinds and trains five hours a day, six days a week.

Her favorite meal is steak, and she is a fan of Lord of the Rings movies. Kassidy's lucky number is 13 and she claims she can recite any Harry Potter spell.
