Cassidy moved to Canada from Queensland, Australia in 2005. She studied at the University of Calgary where she obtained a BSc in Natural Sciences in 2013 with a major in Biology and a minor in Mathematics. Cassidy has since been employed in various roles within Alberta Health Services: health information and records management out of Peter Lougheed Centre; billing for the Pediatrics Department of Alberta Children’s Hospital; supporting the Director of Cancer Care Teams at Tom Baker Cancer Centre and scheduling for the Rockyview General Hospital Intensive Care Unit rotating residents. Most recently she worked from Foothills Medical Centre as a program assistant for the Department of Critical Care Medicine’s research enterprise. She is excited to now call W21C home and have the opportunity to expand her experience and knowledge in clinical trials while working as a research assistant on CRIO Project A: XSENSOR and the STRIVE study. Outside of work you can find Cassidy swimming, cycling and volunteering at a local organization that provides 24-hour support and crisis intervention to callers.
