Cassie Calvert is the marketing and communications manager at Delta Dental of Arizona (DDAZ). Originally a Midwesterner from Ohio, Cassie has settled into desert life in the Grand Canyon state. In her spare time, she can be found exploring new hiking trails with her German Shepherd, Rocky, or training for her next half-marathon. She is grateful to have found her way to DDAZ and loves supporting the mission and vision of the company. Cassie was lucky enough to not only have braces as a child, but to also wear Invisalign for several years as an adult, so her passion for a healthy smile goes well beyond her workplace role.
