Hi! I'm Cassidy!
I am a science communication specialist with a particular interest in experiential design.
I believe tools from the humanities and from STEM must be used in tandem to solve our world's increasingly complex problems. I'm a generalist at heart and love project-based learning.
From designing exhibits and programs for the brand-new Canada Science and Technology Museum to directing the communications for the award-winning Pelling Lab, my career has spanned some amazing organizations. This is still the case as I am currently on contract as a designer for watershed health non-profit Water Rangers.
I am the creator of SciComm School, an upcoming science communication program with the University of Ottawa for Canadians from coast to coast. I am most proud to have founded and led Pulsar Collective, a non-profit which advocates for gender equality in STEM as Executive Director. I was also fortunate enough to deliver a TEDx talk in 2019.
Some of my current areas of interest include product, program, exhibition and service design.
