Resilient, tech-savvy and committed. These are the words that come to mind when describing Katy Cashman. Katy is second generation of the Water Doctors family, so she has been in the company business since high school. For some time after graduating from St. Thomas with a Psychology degree she worked at a nursing home creating fun activities for the residences to participate in. Her passion for the family business and water drew her back.
Katy has had many roles in the company from the beginning, and still does to this day. She started as stamp placer, envelope licker, then promoted to answering phones, billing and scheduling to now, a full blown builder and sales representative. Besides Bob & Laurie Hoey, Katy is Water Doctors longest tenured employee.
Katy is passionate and appreciates providing all her clients with options of water treatment that will suite their needs, expectations and budget. She loves educating people on the importance of water treatment systems, getting dirty, scoping out mechanical rooms and hearing how our water treatment systems has impacted client’s lives.
When Katy isn’t geeking out over water or solving problem water, you will find her at either her home in Maple Grove with her three young kids, husband and dog or at a local nursery. Katy loves her family! She loves instilling her passion for good and healthy food with her family or staying active with playing outside or going to a local museum. If you asked Katy what she would do if she didn’t have to work, she would tell you it is spending time at a nursery. Her green thumb has blossomed, and her plant collection is quite exquisite.
We are lucky and grateful to have Katy as part of the business and a driving force at continuing to make Water Doctors a successful and well-known brand.
Please enjoy reading more about Katy!
