CASSY BURNSIDE, FOUNDER
Cassy’s passion for clean eating inspired her business — making clean skincare products.
For years, Cassy practiced the philosophy that a health-conscious diet can improve your life, one meal at a time. This connection between food and well-being led her on a quest to find skincare products developed for the same benefits. To her, feeding your skin is just as important as feeding your appetite — it’s all about healthy, nutritious choices.
When she couldn’t find exactly what she was searching for, Cassy decided to take matters into her own hands by crafting good-for-you products from her own home; and FATCO was born!
Through the company, Cassy brings awareness and education about how small changes in your life can improve your skin as well as your overall health. Tallow and other naturally occurring ingredients are the basis for FATCO’s products — upholding the idea that just like clean dieting, clean hygiene is a sound approach to living well.
An East Coast native, Cassy attended Northeastern University in Boston where she earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering. She then worked and lived in San Diego for ten years as a Manufacturing Engineer at Autosplice, an automotive manufacturing company. A new opportunity brought her to South Lake Tahoe where she lives and operates FATCO.
“It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes. Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live and let’s change the way we treat each other.” — Tupac Shakur
MASON HIBBARD, SALES
FATCO was a one-woman show until Mason Hibbard came along. His arrival was an unexpected move, fueled by his raw enthusiasm and belief in the brand.
Before he was FATCO’s Employee One, Mason was a software salesman in the Bay Area for more than ten years. He and his wife Jen moved to Lake Tahoe in July 2014, where Jen shortly after ran into another brand new resident at a Chamber of Commerce meeting; Cassy Burnside.
Over the next six months, Mason watched Cassy continue to grow her small following, improve her message, and transform her boutique, home-based fat cosmetic business into a thriving e-commerce entity.
He saw the evolving company as an honest, clean brand with a compelling philosophy. So in March 2015, he officially joined Cassy as a member of the business.
Mason and Cassy describe their relationship as “Business Besties” who share a belief that good products can make a significant impact.
JULIA REQUARTH, MARKETING
Julia discovered FATCO while looking for a local Christmas gift for her mother. She was impressed with the quality of the customer service and her mom instantly fell in love with the Myrrhaculous face cream. Fast forward to a year and a half later and Julia saw an opening to join Team FATCO. She was overwhelmed by FATCO's success and vision for the future and knew this was the place for her.
Born and raised in The Woodlands, TX, Julia headed out west for college and attended Pepperdine University and earned both a B.S. and an M.B.A. She set her sights on the ski industry and worked in marketing for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team in Park City as well as Vail Resorts in Lake Tahoe. While living in Park City, Julia was working with a trainer who asked her to give the Paleo lifestyle a try. What seemed like an overwhelming ask ended up being the best decision of her life. She has since maintained a focus on fueling her body with real food both inside and out.
Julia is stoked to be a part of Team FATCO and proud to stand behind these products that can truly change people's quality of life.
