Cassie took full advantage of the curriculum at her arts magnet school, immersing herself in its numerous offerings—photography, drawing, painting, computer drafting, and interior design, to name a few. Post-matriculation, she made her way through four degrees and a series of five ‘study abroad’ programs that constitute a veritable world tour through Paris, London, Greece, Italy, Barcelona, Amsterdam, and more.
Cassie found that her interests spanned scales, from interior design to urban planning, and she was able to find a great fit among her peers at Perkins and Will. Her first two assignments at the firm serve as a fitting microcosm of her experience: in her first week, she contributed to a watershed vision plan (30+ miles of trails cutting a major swath through the city) and then boarded a plane to Beirut to work on a 790-acre project on the Red Sea.
Cassie enjoys contributing to projects large and small, close and far afield—and relishes the opportunity to synthesize ideas and connect people to projects “from the scale of a room to the scale of a city.”
