Dr. Cassis is originally from Montreal, Canada. She graduated from the University of Montreal School of Optometry in 1992, pursued a Primary Care Residency from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, then moved to the Hampton Roads area in 1995.

She has emphasized continuing education in a professional environment throughout her career and her ongoing commitment to furthering clinical knowledge continues to this day.
