Meet the Team: Cassie Norman
Name: Cassie Norman
Role: UX (User Experience) Designer
Years at Capstone: Since April 2019 (8 months)
Favorite part of working at Capstone: Collaborating with a great team and seeing how our work with PebbleGo directly impacts educators and learners.
How does your role support PebbleGo users? Ultimately the goal of my role is to ensure that PebbleGo is easy to use and engaging for users of all backgrounds and ability levels. I along with the UI/UX architect conduct research to learn more about users and how they interact with the product. Design decisions are aligned to user goals and values that stem from this research.
Favorite article within PebbleGo: Tigers (my favorite animal)
Favorite Capstone book/series: A Different Pond
Family: I’m the only child of an elementary school music teacher and IT tech/ jazz drummer. I grew up surrounded by plenty of music, creativity, and extended family.
Pets: None right now, but planning to get a dog very soon!
Favorite US state apart from the one you live in: California for the beautiful beaches, walking trails, and Monterey Bay Aquarium. Washington D.C. is also a favorite because I have a lot of family in the area; there’s also a ton of amazing museums and monuments.
Favorite thing to do on the weekend: Visiting family, trying new restaurants / recipes, reading, and watching movies.
