Associate Medical Illustrator
Cassie was born and raised on the island of Oahu in the beautiful state of Hawaii. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a minor in Art History/Visual Arts from Occidental College. Her plans to attend medical school changed when she discovered the field of medical illustration, which combined her two greatest passions—biology and art. She went on to earn her Master of Fine Arts in Medical Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology. While completing her degree, she worked with the anatomy department at John A. Burns School of Medicine to create 3D models to aid in teaching medical students. This opened her eyes to the possibilities that interactive platforms have with regard to expanding accessibility to educational tools and creating incredible new experiences. Cassie is excited to have found a team that shares her enthusiasm for scientific education and advancement. In her free time, she enjoys singing and playing the acoustic guitar and ukulele.
