Cassidy Marn
Executive Vice President

Cassidy grew up on a wheat/barley/cattle operation in North Central Montana, the daughter of a veterinarian father and elementary school teacher mother. Growing up on the Hi-Line taught her many useful life skills including the ability to drive and maintain both tandem and semi grain-hauling trucks, backing up successfully with a trailer, and not tearing out large sections of fence with various farm implements! Cassidy has public relations and marketing experience from serving as Miss Rodeo Montana 2006, and working in the tourism industry for 3 years.

Cassidy lives on Belt Creek with her husband, Jeff. She spends her spare time riding her horses, Leona and Big Mama, being entertained by her bulldogs, Daisy and Olive, and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Golden Triangle.
