Cassandra “CJ” Drees, MD (she/her)

Position: PGY-3

Undergraduate: Elmira College
Medical School: Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo (AOA)

Cassandra is originally from Pittsford, NY. She attended Elmira College where she majored in both Biology and Chemistry. She then moved to Buffalo for medical school where she volunteered at multiple camps for children with type 1 diabetes and realized that pediatrics was her calling. After her third year of medical school she decided to add a year to her training in order to pursue her MBA. This experience has uncovered a secondary passion for healthcare operations and eliminating waste in the healthcare system. Cassandra is thrilled to join the Brown family; she and her husband look forward to falling even more in love with Providence! In her spare time, she likes to cook, drink craft beer, attend Zumba classes and spend time with her husband and their two cats Loki and Luna.
