Hi! I am Cassandra; I was born in a small town in Oregon and came from a family of loggers. We would often spend her time outdoors, going to work with my father when he was logging, hunting, and fishing. At the age of 13, we moved to Arizona to be with our aunt, where she lived and helped care for her families Camel Farm that was home to over 200 animals.
Through my high school years I was involved in FFA, Art, Drama, track and field, ceramics, and choir. After receiving a scholarship for choir I decided it wasn’t the right fit for myself eventually moving back to Oregon and becoming a CNA.
I have experience working in several healthcare settings, specifically in geriatric care. Over the years she has helped many people, but her true passion was Hospice Care. “When families or patients were in need I would help.” This included; continuing care with patients that had been discharged from Hospice, making a meal for a patient in need, buying clothing for patients, and would sometimes volunteer cook and serve meals to the homeless.
After working in Hospice Care for 2 years, at the age of 28 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. “Although I had to take a year off from work to have treatment such as chemo, radiation and go through multiple surgeries, I came back into Hospice care with a better understanding and respect for others and their families who were battling cancer, or going through the dying process.”
After taking a few years off from work, I moved to the Tri-Cities in 2020 with her two daughters, one whom currently wrestles for the Richland Bombers Girls Wrestling Team and the other just beginning middle school.
I started at Einan’s as a Transfer Technician in July of 2021, before accepting an offer to be a part of the Einan’s Team full time as a Crematory Operator, a Service Assistant and I continue to be a part of the Transfer Technician Team.
It is an honor to continue serving others in a community I’m growing to love. I’m excited to be a part of the team at Einan’s, and I look forward to this next chapter in my life. As long as I’m able I will continue helping others, because that’s what brings me true joy.
