Cassandra Kadel joined the Animal Specialty Center family in 2019 as the Marketing and Referral Manager. While some people take years to find their passion, Cassandra has been working her whole life toward a career in animal care. She used to say she wanted to be a “spicy vegetarian” when she was older because she wanted to be a Spice Girl and couldn’t pronounce the word ‘veterinarian.’ While graduating with honors from Ramapo College of New Jersey with a bachelor’s degree in Global Communication, Cassandra served as the lead marketing coordinator at Camp Bow Wow, a pet boarding, grooming, and daycare service. Prior to joining the ASC team, Cassandra worked for leading industry brands like Nestlé Purina Pro Plan and MyVet Imaging, Inc., gaining extensive knowledge in pet products and healthcare needs.
As marketing manager at Animal Specialty Center, she supports local communities by finding the best ways to serve and educate animal lovers. Cassandra’s skills in content creation and relations with the public make her a valuable member of the ASC team. She is actively involved in ASC’s pet loss support groups, CE and event management. And, if you see a post on ASC’s Facebook or Instagram accounts, she is likely to be one of the friendly faces on the other side of the computer screen. Cassandra lives in the southern Hudson Valley region of New York with her partner, Joel, and a lovable Ragamuffin cat named Penny. They have plans to add dogs and chickens to the family soon. Cassandra enjoys going on road trips, rock climbing, hiking, and skiing in her spare time.
