Ashley’s Growth Path

There’s something to be said about having both agency and client-side experience. They each provide a unique perspective about business challenges and how to balance marketing strategy and tactical execution. As the client experience leader for Adept, Ashley’s experience in a variety of verticals is incredibly valuable. Her work has supported global clients like Charles Schwab, Google, The Ritz Carlton, GE Global Research, and many more.

Her goal is to be a valuable extension of any internal team, offering deep expertise in developing strategies that span brand, content, and digital marketing. In addition to honing her skills in the field, she earned a degree in rhetoric and communications at State University of New York at Albany and is passionate about creating strong company culture and developing leaders.

In Her Downtime

Ashley spends much of her downtime juggling the activities and schedules of her active blended family. Relief comes in the form of early morning jogs, getaways to their cabin in Pennsylvania, and good music (which does not include Neil Young).
