Cassia enjoys synchronized swimming, home renovations, people-watching, reading and sewing. Her most recent work adventure was as a bridal consultant at a boutique, giving her access to hundreds of beautiful gowns as well as an endless supply of new people to observe. She finds people, as a general group, to be both intensely fascinating and frustrating. Despite an occasional aversion to large social situations, she finds learning about a stranger's history and motivation to be one of the most inspiring ways to spend time.
During her time at The University of Arizona, Cassia enhanced her interpersonal/social skills (participated in Greek life), learned new ways to achieve financial independence from her parents (used credit cards excessively), gained effective study/organizational habits for later career use (large amounts of caffeine and a schedule that starts after noon) and worked on herself as an individual (cultivated a year-round tan). When occasionally attending class, Cassia preferred those with such varied subjects as film, criminal law, poetry and gender studies. Wildcat for life!
Cassia spent seven years working as a paralegal and legal assistant for partner attorneys in law firms that specialized in insurance defense. During her time there, Cassia was responsible for communication to clients, attorneys and judges. After proving her writing and editing abilities, she was tasked with creating official legal documents, including Responses, Motions and proposed Orders.
Cassia has worked with several different companies on their marketing materials. She was the sole copy creator for Southern Sound, Inc.'s marketing pamphlet/proposal for Florida area World of Beer franchise locations. She also participated in both copy creation and editing of revamped promotional materials for ClearpH, a design and branding company that was interested in increasing their athlete branding client base.
Cassia was given the opportunity to build and refine a mission statement for a marketing/design business. She was tasked with creating both an extended statement, which would specify not only the goals of the business, but also the spirit behind the owner, and also a simple, one-line statement that concisely defined the company.
Cassia was commissioned to write copy for television commercial scripts being offered to Florida eating institution Ker's WingHouse. She was tasked with cultivating a fresh take on the classic WingHouse slogan, "Need we say more?" Eventually she provided the client with a trio of cohesive commercial scripts, each highlighting a different selling point of the restaurant. Cassia also provided the script for app KnowSee's advertising.
