WPRS: How did you get your start in marketing / communications?
Cassie: I got my start in communications after graduating from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2020. I jumped right into a public relations assistant role at Home Hardware Stores Limited shortly after graduation and fell in love with storytelling and media relations.

WPRS: What’s your favorite social media platform?
Cassie: I am an Instagram girl through and through. I love taking and sharing pictures, but I also use Instagram to find cool restaurants, cafes, shops and activities to try out.

WPRS: What’s your favorite marketing quote?
Cassie: “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” – George Bernard Shaw

WPRS: What’s your best story?
Cassie: When I was in university, I went to Times Square for New Year’s Eve. My two friends and I had been waiting in the pouring rain since 3pm for the ball drop, and at around 8pm they decided they had had enough and went back to our hotel. I was too stubborn to leave, so I stood alone in Times Square until I worked up the courage to ask four kind-looking strangers around my age if I could stand with them until midnight. Turns out they were Canadians too and students at the university just down the road from mine!

WPRS: What’s your passion outside of work?
Cassie: I love spending time outside, whether that’s going on walks, hiking, or playing sports. I also enjoy reading a good suspense novel, and going for coffee with friends.
