Cassie is not just another pretty face, she is the jack of all trades in the office. Cassie has the memory of an elephant... As soon as you walk through the door, she will greet you by name and with a smile…she will probably even remember,what you wore last time you were in as well! When Cassie isn’t working, she's travelling around the world or can be found at the dog park with her Blue Heeler Nigel. Good luck catching Cassie without a smile! You will always find that she is happy, and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you’re comfortable in our office.
