Casandra moved to Eustis in 2009 to join the team at Tavares Animal Hospital after graduating from the University of Florida’s college of veterinary medicine. Soon after joining the team, she became a partner in the practice. After working closely for several years with Richard and Celia Thompson, her mentors and the original practice owners, she became full owner of Tavares Animal Hospital in October of 2014.
Casandra’s family at home consists of her husband Michael, her daughter Amelia, and her son Henry.
Casandra’s pet family is made up of cats, dogs, birds and reptiles. She has extensive personal experience with several exotic species including snakes, tortoises, prairie dogs, veiled chameleons and rabbits. In addition to her personal experience, she has taken many additional educational courses pertaining to these exotics and small mammals. This has allowed her to add a new dimension to the care provided at TAH.
