Crystal Cassell. I was born and raised in small-town North Platte, Nebraska where I had been a resident for the past 30 years. I attended McCook Community College in 2005 where I studied Criminal Justice and was part of the NJCAA volleyball team for two years. After graduating from college, I moved back to North Platte and started my journey as an Office Manager with Mid-Nebraska Physical Therapy. I was part of their staff for the past 7 years until we decided to make the big move to beautiful Florida. We are still getting adjusted to the faster pace of living here but definitely have no complaints about the great weather. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, riding horses, going to the beach, photography and playing volleyball.   

Anaya Perry. I am a Colorado native despite living in Florida for the past 14 years. I am 23 years old and the CEO of Nayas Sweet Treatz. I started this small home baking business when I was a junior in high school in 2010. In 2011 I wrote a book that will be published in the coming years. I also studied welding for a short period of time at Seminole State College in 2015 which I really enjoyed and plan on return in 2021 to finish my last few months.

I am currently a student at Daytona State College where I am studying to get my A.S. in Culinary Management. In my spare time though I enjoy listening to music, sleeping, eating, and spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy spending my summers in Colorado it’s so beautiful and peaceful I advise you to make a trip out there if you have never been before. 🙂 I’m not sure if there is anything else to say about me but I hope to see you soon and that you enjoy your PT (Physical Therapy) here. 🙂

We look forward to assisting with your recovery!
