Cassidy Matano developed a passion for animals and an appreciation of the behind-the-scenes contributions to their care at a young age. A local AAHA accredited veterinary hospital doubled as her school bus stop and her weekday afternoons were spent playing with animals, actively avoiding kennel duty, and observing hospital procedures and client interactions whenever she could.

Her professional career briefly took her away from the industry following her graduation from Centre College and The Pennsylvania State University. Upon graduation, she pursued a career in higher education where she could leverage her expertise in organizational leadership, customer service, project management, marketing and creative design. Fortunately for Blue Heron, Cassidy is returning to our profession as the Director of Marketing and Client Relations and looks forward to serving our team and clients.

Cassidy resides in South Bend, Indiana with her fiancé, John and their cat, Wrigley. In her free time she enjoys baseball games, thunderstorms, and trying new recipes.
