Year of the Nurse: Marquis and Nurse Cassandra
Published July 3, 2020

Marquis and Nurse Cassandra smiling at the camera2020 is the Year of the Nurse. As we celebrate this year, we want to honor some of our incredible Aveanna nurses. Nurses like Cassandra Fix, RN.

Cassandra has cared for our patient Marquis for 11 years. She is extremely reliable, very involved in Marquis’s care, and always advocating for him.

Cassandra’s clinical assessment skills are spot on. She knows which treatments work for Marquis and which don’t. She understands his nonverbal cues and always knows what he needs. She will be assisting Marquis with his acts of daily living one moment, and then observe and manage an absent seizure the next.

Along with her clinical skills, Cassandra brings a passion for caregiving to her work with Marquis. The bond that these two share is so special, and it’s evident that the care Cassandra provides to Marquis comes straight from her heart. Marquis’s grandmother says that Cassandra is like family and that she can always count on her to be there for Marquis. Cassandra’s dedication and commitment are truly inspiring. We are honored to have her on the Aveanna team. Thank you, Cassandra, for your incredible heart for care!
