Kasandra joined the AAH family back in Summer '16 after a long history of growing up wanting to help all animals. During her childhood she was able to help hamsters, fish (including "sharky" the shark), cats, dogs, and some iguanas; most of which she named after Disney characters! At 16, Kasandra began her studies in Criminology and Psychology, but her passion for animals never waned. She started to learn more about animal medicine through previous employment at Busch Gardens and The Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Now, she loves greeting all the patients at Avian and Animal Hospital and desires to continue working with animals as a career. She currently has two children, a bearded dragon, a dog, and a ferret. In her free time, you can find Kasandra at anything Disney or out dancing with her friends.
