Cassandra Henderson is a board-certified Physician Assistant at Affiliated Dermatology. In 2016, she graduated from Utica College in New York with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. After graduating college, Cassandra worked as a medical assistant under several dermatology PAs who enlightened her to become one herself. She went on to receive her Physician Assistant training from Arizona School of Health Sciences at A.T. Still University. Cassandra is also BLS and ACLS certified.

Cassandra was inspired by her aunt, a fellow Physician Assistant, because she was pivotal in opening her eyes to the wonders of the profession and she strives to be a great provider like her. Cassandra chose to become a Physician Assistant because she has a true passion for medicine and patient care. She knew from a very young age that she wanted to work in the medical field, and she loves dermatology because it is so vast, has a lot of variety, and allows her to use her critical thinking skills. Cassandra enjoys treating patients of all ages, getting to know them through their visits, and creating a trusting relationship which fosters an environment to better their health. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is so important to one’s overall health. By keeping the skin healthy, she believes it is the first step to keeping the mind, body, and spirit healthy as well.

In her free time, you can find Cassandra spending time with her husband and their two adorable, energetic dogs. She also enjoys playing pick-up soccer, maintaining an active lifestyle, and visiting her family and friends in New York.
