As a future Forensic Anthropologist, Cassidy might just be the most interesting person in the room! Make sure you ask her about her plans to dig-up a seventeenth century Polish grave site this summer as a part of her field study.
As her co-worker Hayley says, “She’s super cool to work with, extremely dedicated to her studies, and has the most wicked sense of humor out of all the baristas here.”
