ATLANTA – Cassondra “Cassie” Hayasaka has joined Georgia State University College of Law as an Administrative Specialist. She will be providing administrative support to the Center for Law, Health & Society and to faculty affiliated with the Center.
Hayasaka formerly worked as the Coordinator of Admissions and Student Services at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University, where she was responsible for meeting and event planning, preparation of reports and presentations, print and electronic communications, project and office management, budget oversight, and web maintenance.
“We are delighted to have Cassie join the team,” said Charity Scott, Director of the Center and Catherine C. Henson Professor of Law. “Her extensive administrative experience in the higher education setting will enable her to jump quickly into Center activities.”
After spending four years at Emory, Hayasaka enrolled in a post baccalaureate Arts Administration Program at New York University and trained to be a docent with the High Museum of Art. “Cassie’s museum experience provides a unique combination of skills that will be beneficial to the varied needs of the Center,” observed Stacie Kershner (’08), Associate Director. “She has strong organizational and communication skills, and she is also very creative.”
When asked what attracted her to the position, Hayasaka said, “My husband is a graduate of the College of Law, and he brought my attention to the position. We were familiar with the goals and role the Center plays in the academic and legal communities and felt that my qualifications and past experience would be a good match.”
Scott agreed that Hayasaka represented an excellent fit with the mission and needs of the Center. “I know that everyone shares our great pleasure in welcoming Cassie on board,” she said.
Hayasaka earned her B.A. in Art History in 2004. She and her husband, Keith Hayasaka (’08), have two children, Lucas and Naomi.
