So you wanted to get to know me…
Cassandra Daugette is a copywriter for Jump, a marketing and branding firm in St. Louis, Missouri, providing marketing, PR, and digital services. Daugette’s responsibilities range from creating content, providing creative direction, and establishing consistent messaging true to a client’s goals and values.
As a former teaching assistant for Southeast Missouri State University’s English Department, she earned her Master’s in Professional Writing May 2016. While excelling in her studies, she has also presented at The Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900 twice, in spring 2015 and spring 2016. Her essay “Victims, Heroes, and Language Games in Oryx and Crake” won the Literati Best Essay award and was published in Literati spring 2016.
Cassi is also very interested in technology and SEO (search engine optimization). In another life–read 2013–she had a technology blog where she provided brief commentary on new releases and community reception of those releases or announcements. The blog’s most popular page, however, ended up being a page dedicated to a Samsung phone’s Straight Talk APN settings. She developed the page to help others solve a problem she’d encountered. The page’s response is what jump-started her love for SEO — though she wouldn’t know the term for it until later.
Finally, Cassi loves to be active. While she has several medals from running, she also enjoys gymnastics–to the best of her ability, hiking, swimming, yoga, and lastly the old cliche, dancing like no one is watching.
