Cassandra S.

Head Receptionist

"Cassandra has been in the Ottawa area her whole life. Having been raised in what some might call a zoo, she does not recall a time in her childhood where there were less than three animals in the house at a time. Now living on her own with her new kitten Bellatrix, she spends her spare time reading books with Bella or streaming games with friends. She loves not only the LAH team, but the adorable pets brought in everyday and can't wait for what's to come.'
