If you have an electrical emergency, Cassandra will be the one to ensure one of the team can get to you the same day to fix it. Before joining Hornsby Electric, Cassandra was a valued paramedic for NSW Ambulance, which was ideal for her natural compassion and ability to stay calm under pressure, she has spent the last 16 years as the office manager for Hornsby Electric.

In her spare time, Cas loves cuddling her cats, snow skiing, and cooking and has recently developed a passion for native gardening, fostering a keen interest in providing habitat for our area’s local frogs, bees, and native birdlife.
