Hi Everyone! My name is Cassie (she/her) – A lifetime dancer turned software programmer; I leverage my inner cheerleader spirit to bring a new sparkling light to embedded computing. With hands-on systems engineering and real-time software development experiences, my specialty is low level programming on embedded operating systems for commercial off the shelf (COTS) and rugged military systems.
When I’m not behind a desk developing, you can find me volunteering as a Software Robotics Coach for middle and high school FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) teams. Once I hung up my pom-poms and dance shoes, I took my lively stage presences to the robotics field! The volunteer work the teams, myself, and fellow coaches do is way more than building and programming robots. Even though we have participated in ground-breaking outreach opportunities to spread the word of STEM, my personal passion is to empower the students to be future gamechangers – & accomplishing FIRST’s mission – helping them build a sense of belonging and self-confidence, along with leadership and problem solving skills –
Cassie holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, with a minor in Computer Engineer from Old Dominion University – Let’s Go Blue!
