After graduating with a BA in Psychology from the University of Ottawa, Cassandra signed with Ford Models and embarked on a formative stint as a fashion model, a career that had her living short-term in each of Tokyo, London, Paris, Sydney, Milan and Athens.
A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts followed by La Sorbonne, she brings enthusiasm, proactivity and ‘je ne sais quoi’ to every element of her service.
After working at Ralph Lauren in Paris and behind-the-scenes at one of New York’s biggest matchmaking firms, Emily sensed a gap in the market for an intensely personalized, discreet and chic dating service, that would appeal to her international and artistic circles.
Rachel loves yoga, horseback riding, skiing and scuba diving whenever she can too, as ways to unwind from her fast-paced work weeks.
A Canada native who just fêted her 10-year-NYC anniversary, Cassandra Tighe is Last First’s Membership Director.
She interviews prospective clients, helps them define their core relationship goals, and if they are a fit, tailors membership packages to their individual needs.
Cassandra is the first point of contact for our clients on their quest for a committed relationship, and ensures that both sides’ values align before offering up a membership spot.We work with a very small number of clients, using proactive targeted networking, plus searches of our existing membership, to match each one.Since our launch day and with no exceptions, we have contractually guaranteed 15 introductions within a 6-month period, unless a client wishes to go more slowly or ideally, stops entirely to pursue an exclusive relationship.Emily’s non-matchmaking obsessions include all things theater, all things France and French culture, and more recently, all things dogs.Emily, her husband and their puppy Wilfie reside in Tribeca and divide their time-off between the city and their home in East Hampton.Emily enjoys strong coffees and boutique champagnes (often in the same sitting), and loves any occasion she can dress for.
