Hi! I am Cassandra; I was born in a small town in Oregon and came from a family of loggers. I spent my childhood outdoors going to work with my father, when he was logging, hunting and fishing. At the age of 13, I moved to Arizona to be with My Aunt. There I helped care for my family’s Camel Farm that was home to over 200 exotic animals until I graduated from High School.
After High School I was given the opportunity to work as a Nursing Assistant, which eventually led to me getting My CNA2 License. I have experience working in several healthcare settings, specifically in geriatric care. Over the years I have helped many people, but my true passion was Hospice Care.
After working in Hospice Care for 3 years, at the age of 29 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Although, I had to take a year off from work to undergo treatment for cancer which included chemotherapy, radiation and multiple surgeries. I returned to Hospice care with a better understanding and respect for those who were battling cancer, going through the dying process, or had lost a loved one in their fight.
I moved to the Tri-Cities in 2020 with my two daughters, one of whom currently wrestles for the Richland Bombers, and the other just starting middle school. I joined Einan’s as part of the Transfer Team in July of 2021, which led me to accepting an offer for a Crematory Operator/Service Assistant position, and I continue to be a part of the Transfer Team here at Einan’s.
I am grateful for this opportunity I’ve been given, It is an honor to continue serving others in a community I’m growing to love. I look forward to this next chapter in my life, and as long as I’m able I will continue helping others, because that’s what brings me true joy.
