Cassie is the Tile & Flooring Sales Manager at Earth Elements Design Center in Whitefish, MT. She grew up on construction sites, as her father has owned a design/build construction company for over 30 years. Being ever curious with how spaces and materials can subconsciously make a person feel, she began a life adventure discovering how creativity connects & encourages people. She graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle in 2008 with a BA in Interior Design. She worked in Seattle then returned to her home state to raise a family and enjoy the wonders that surround our valley. Cassie is most drawn to the art of lighting and how that interacts with textures and planes. She hopes that with her experience in wood and tile along with her background in lighting that she can encourage people to push their limits and confidently create personally inspiring & meaningful, yet also provocative spaces for their lifestyle. Having young kids and believing in the importance of art, she has previously painted children’s murals, and continues to encourage that creative connection with our younger generations.
