Cassidy was raised on the Western Slope of Colorado in the small town of Basalt. She grew up playing soccer, bowling and watching her father raise Thoroughbred horses.

She graduated from Regis University in 2005 with a Bachelors degree in art, and a minor in marketing. She worked for more than five years in marketing for a sunglass lens company before returning to school to attend Bel-Rea Institute. Cassidy graduated in 2011 and began her career as a CVT working with large animals. When a more challenging position presented itself, she moved to an internal medicine practice and realized that she really loved working with small animals in specialty medicine.

When not working, Cassidy enjoys wake boarding, bowling and enjoying the outdoor playground that Colorado offers. In early 2014, Cassidy and her husband welcomed their baby girl, Tyler. While they couldn’t be more happy with their new arrival, their two year old Shih Tzu is still adjusting.
