Meet the Team Tuesday: Cassie Desrochers
Here at Forests, Tides & Treasures, we believe that we’re always better together, and that starts with having a strong team! As a way to help you get to know our rockstar crew, this summer we’ll be featuring the faces of the FTT Family.
Our first featured team member is Cassie Desrochers, co-manager and friendly front-of-house face of Forests, Tides & Treasures.
Cassie moved to Alaska six years ago and spent time living in Portage, Girdwood, and Anchorage before arriving in Seward in 2020. She’s been an asset to the FTT Family since 2021, and we’re so pleased to have her!
When it comes to favorite brands and products that we carry in-store, Cassie has a hard time picking her faves because she loves everything! There wouldn’t be any fun in letting her get away with that answer, though, so, when pushed, Cassie says that one of her favorite brands we carry is Cotopaxi, and she loves everything about them. The Kapai 3L Hip Pack is the Cotopaxi product that Cassie uses most often, but she recently added the 1.5-liter version to her collection too.
Outside of work, Cassie is a keen hiker, and one of her favorite local spots is the stunningly scenic Vagt Lake Trail in the Chugach National Forest. When Cassie isn’t enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors, she likes to curl up with a good book, such as The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune, a book she’d recommend everyone read. Cassie also loves to travel, and her dream vacation would be a trip to Vietnam & Thailand.
Finally, we asked Cassie for a fun fact and she said, “I currently live in a 500 sq ft yurt with my fiancé, two dogs, and a kitten.”
If you stop by Forests, Tides & Treasures this summer, ask Cassie to see more pictures of Noodle, the cutest kitten ever, she has a whole folder on her phone dedicated to Noodle!
