Growing up, Cassandra spent time in her father’s shop. He is a furniture builder, and she would assist with projects, which ultimately sparked her creativity to pursue interior design. While working on her degree in Interior Architecture at Florida State University she jumped on an opportunity to help preserve one of the homes Frank Lloyd Wright designed. During this time, she discovered that her foundational interest in interior design was “how we as humans react to our built environment & how much of it influences our wellbeing and actions.” She has a strong stance that, “as a designer it's important to really consider the end user of the space and employ evidence-based design throughout the entire process.” Cassandra is motivated to create designs that are human centric that will ultimately help create fulfilling experiences, while fostering the individual’s self-expression.
Cassandra has traveled extensively; she was especially influenced by the architect, Antoni Gaudí in Spain, where his work left her feeling “overwhelmed by the sensation of inspiration and appreciation.” In her spare time Cassandra enjoys an array of outdoor activities, which include long distance backpacking, rock climbing, or snowboarding to name a few. She also appreciates taking time to be in her pottery studio where she makes ceramics.
