Cassandra Schwartz

Product Marketing Manager

As a child, when I couldn’t find something I wanted — I created it. Fortunately, my mother willingly facilitated my grand schemes while tempering my expectations. Over the decades, I learned how to discern not only what I was capable of doing but what was worthy of attempting. My drive (and stubbornness) led me to attempt and fail at almost every sport in junior high, design and sew my own clothing, and even to start a collegiate sorority. I treated the phrase “You can’t do that” as an invitation for me to prove I could in fact “do that.”

I became skilled at identifying the unfulfilled needs that no company or person could provide on my terms. Sometimes, this translated into million dollar ideas. One close friend frequently jokes that he “looks forward to the day I come up with a big, affordable, idea.” It’s no wonder my friends are no longer surprised when I expound on my newest idea, endeavor, or office project.

For example, when I started, I had identified a need to help women share their stories and connect with each other. It’s one of many examples of an idea that meets a need and involves creating connections. Facilitating connection drove me to pursue a Master degree in Communication Leadership in Communities and Networks and what thrilled me about joining Xinova. As a product marketer, connecting and engaging people is the core to my role. What could be more exciting than connecting people around the globe to solve big problems?
