Creative and Marketing Director
A Nevada native, Cassie Howatt’s knack for creating gorgeous and unique floral arrangements and event décor, as well as her love for theatrics, has put her in the spotlight as potential frontrunner in the event planning industry. She spent most of her youth around events; from her Grandmother’s family gatherings to spending time with family friends who are veterans of the event industry to helping her mother on marketing events, she learned trends and techniques that make her an integral member of her mother’s ever-growing event planning company, DiVine Events.
Howatt is the Creative and Marketing Director for DiVine Events, where she is responsible for what she does best – all creative aspects for the company’s client events. From marketing and advertising, to floral and event décor design, Howatt has proven herself to be a well rounded and driven individual, passionate about all facets of the event planning industry as well as giving back to the community.
Her passion for her chosen profession has garnered Howatt numerous awards for her design work, including 2008 Most Creative Table Design at University of Southern Nevada’s Designs of Fantasy High Tea and 2010 Best of Show booth design at Bridal Spectacular.
From a young age, Howatt has demonstrated determination and a love for the arts by spending almost two decades practicing ballet. Howatt attended high school at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing & Visual Arts, where she further extended her knowledge of the arts and her love of working with colors and textures. As a natural born leader, she was awarded the position of Student Body President. After graduating, she attended Arizona State University with a major in Interior Design. Soon after moving to Arizona, her mother started an event planning and management company, and Howatt decided to transfer to the University of Nevada – Las Vegas, where she graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Meeting & Event Management.
Aside from her academic and professional successes, Howatt continues to stay involved in the community through philanthropic endeavors with organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Ronald McDonald House, University of Southern Nevada, and Human Rights Campaign. Not only is Howatt lending her expertise with design and décor solutions, but she has also served on the boards of many of the organizations.
While attending college, Howatt continually devoted her time to creative work and honed her design skills in the creative arts as an assistant at Diane Cabrall Interior Design; a contributing member of the event staff with a Las Vegas based event planning company; and assistant manager for a décor company in Arizona.
Howatt’s natural talent and design expertise, coupled with her artistic talent, enable her to bring a fresh and energetic perspective to the event planning industry.
