The Levittown Chamber of Commerce would like to introduce Owner and principal of LuCas Communications, Louise Cassano who is a public relations specialist and consultant who established her business in 1994 after a career in journalism for a community newspaper. 

Cassano is no stranger to the Chamber and the Levittown community but there may be several things that may not be known about her!

Cassano’s out-of-high school career, stemming from a high school internship, was in the general insurance industry as a personal lines broker. As a mother and non-traditional student, she achieved her Associates Degree in Fine Arts from Nassau Community College, a Bachelor’s degree in American Studies from SUNY Old Westbury and a Master’s degree in Communication Arts from New York Institute of Technology. Soon after, in 1994, she started her own business, in which she has helped clients promote their businesses and themselves.
