Cassandra Munoz has been a Make48 team member since 2017.
What is your role at Make48?
I’m the marketing/social media coordinator, and also write the blogs and sometimes feed the sheep on the Gray farm.
How did you get involved with the company?
I moved back to KC after being in New York City, and took a job at a brewery because I didn’t want another corporate position, and didn't want to jump into anything. Make48 offices were around the corner at the time and they needed help a couple days a week with social media. I started working for teams and now it's 4 years later!
What is your family life/background?
I grew up in the Midwest with my parents and younger brother. I went to college at MU and Park University, where I got my criminal justice degree. During college I began working at a media company, which lasted over a decade. Then I worked for Mitch Holthus and the KC Chiefs for nearly eight years too, which brought my love of media and football together. Currently I live in Kansas City with my fur baby, Luna.
What have you learned from working with this organization?
There is so much I’ve learned. From different types of tools, makerspaces and the invention process. How to film a series and the work behind it. It's been an endless source of knowledge.
What inspires you?
Seeing people do good things for others. I’ve loved working with the nonprofits and charity organizations through the Maker Series we filmed during covid.
What’s something you make or have made that you’re proud of? (or won’t ever forget)
My favorite ‘making’ memory is all those times I helped my grandmother make homemade blueberry muffins growing up. But as an adult I've been refurbishing some older furniture this past year.
What is your favorite part about your role/Make48?
Everyone on the team has been fantastic to work with. I love meeting new people and the feeling after an event. It’s a lot of hard work, but seeing how we bring so many together is remarkable. I love seeing people achieve their dreams.
If you weren’t working for Make48, what do you think you’d be doing?
I would be working for a television or film company. Or take my love for nature, camping and hiking and turning it into a photography book or documentary. Since working with Make48, I’d love to create my own documentaries about some of the amazing people I’ve met throughout my life and share everyone's amazing journeys.
