Topaz & Sapphire is the creative inception of sisters Cassie and Latisha.

From an early age both had professional aspirations — as elementary school kids Cassie wanted to be a meteorologist, while Latisha wanted to be a pediatrician.

Times changed, they grew, and new ambitions were realized. What stayed the same was their vision of a working woman with an inspiring home life. They believe life is about balance and that you can have a great career while still pursuing excellence in other areas outside of work. T&S is a space that celebrates career, as well as recreational and home life. Forget “having it all” and focus more on “giving it your all.” You’re a gem — life is what refines you.

Cassie, (aka Topaz), graduated from the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University with a degree in business marketing. Though she’s married to a New Englander, she will forever root for her Carolina Panthers. In her down time Cassie buys her pup Charlotte Barkley new chew toys that are destroyed within 30 minutes and Snapchats 24/7. She can be found dancing around her kitchen or packing her suitcase for her next adventure. She currently works as social media strategist for an international realty company.

Latisha, (aka Sapphire), graduated from the School of Journalism and Media at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. (Back in her day it was called the School of Journalism and Mass Communication.) She enjoys binge watching unrealistic TV shows, practicing her French on the Duolingo app, and is obsessed with loves the color blue. Books and freshly baked bread are her two favorite smells. She currently works as a junior copywriter for a creative digital ad agency and freelances for magazines in her “spare” time.
