After stints at BBDO Canada and john st., Cassandra is currently a Senior Art Director at Edelman New York, working on Unilever and TJX Companies. At Edelman, she strives to create purpose-driven work that makes as much of a difference to the world as it does in today’s virtual boardroom. She wholly believes that great big ideas can make a great big impact on the future of business and the future of our world.
Cassandra cares greatly about paying it forward, with a passion for mentoring young creatives. She has been a part of OCADU’s guest faculty for the Advertising program, as well as The Young Ones student winners’ mentorship program. Her second passion is tied between floral design and teaching yoga, which she does both exquisitely amateurly.
