Cassie was raised in Omaha, actually in Woodhaven-the neighborhood adjacent to The Ridge Veterinary Clinic! Cassie graduated from Millard North High School, earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Wayne State College in 2009, and went on to earn her Associate’s Degree in Veterinary Technology from Iowa Western Community College in 2012. In 2016, Cassie earned her Certification in Rehabilitation from the Canine Rehabilitation Institute. Cassie saw first-hand the benefits of physical rehabilitation in dogs, after Dr. Beck rehabbed her childhood English Springer Spaniel after knee surgery, and wanted to help other pets improve their mobility and pain control. Cassie’s husband, Josh, is a steamfitter and loves to hunt, fish, and create new toys out of stainless steel. Together, they have one daughter, Aria who was born in 2016 as well as an ornery and energetic English Springer Spaniel rescue, Gunner. Beyond assisting dogs with rehabilitation, Cassie enjoys playing with her daughter, and cuddling up with a good book (if Aria has a say, several good books)!
