Cassidy Schneider grew up in a small town outside of Seattle, Washington. She studied Business and Social Services at Lake Washington Institute of Technology
In 2014, Cassidy moved to Southern California to pursue a professional career in bank mortgages. Since finding recovery herself, Cassidy had a yearning to help others grow in their recovery which lead her to working in treatment. She has worn multiple hats specializing in alumni services and outreach, finding her home in admissions. Cassidy is highly trained and experienced in helping families and clients in crisis.
In her own words, “I’m on fire for what I do! I put my heart and soul into this work. I love having the opportunity every day to work with families and clients to help them achieve a healthy start in recovery. The best part about my job is watching my clients grow and come back to life”.
When she’s not in her office or on an admissions call, you will find Cassidy on her yoga mat, catching a wave, or on an adventure.
“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one, but it will only grow in the mud. In order to grown and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud-the obstacles of life and its suffering. The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations are in life. Whether we have it all or have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. “
