“If your goal feels unattainable, complete small tasks every day that move you toward the big objective.” —Cassie Dispenza, Senior Director of Marketing & Partnerships, Saffire
Photo by Jessica AttieWhen it comes to business travel, this ain’t Cassie Dispenza’s first rodeo. Cassie works as the senior director of marketing and partnerships at Saffire, a software company that provides integrated websites and ticketing systems to events and venues. While serving Saffire’s wide-ranging client base, she has visited more than 70 festivals, stock shows, and county fairs across the U.S. With a job that entails setting up booths at 20 trade shows a year, Cassie can’t always pack light. Thanks to the bags fly free® policy at Southwest®, she’s able to bring everything she needs for work—and save money. Cassie’s frequent work travel also allows her to earn Rapid Rewards® points, which she uses to take vacations with her husband. We love seeing you onboard, Cassie!
