Ashley Soller Ashley Soller graduated from Ferris in the Spring of 2016 with a Bachelors degree in Marketing. Ashley was the last year's Case Team leader that led Ferris to second place in the international competition. We're happy to be hearing from her this week for our alumni spotlight! Where are you working and how long have you been there? Ashley is working with Staples Business Advantage and has been with them for 9 months. She started in the Apprentice Program out of Colorado but was recently promoted and is in Texas now. What is your favorite AMA memory? Ashley's favorite AMA Memory was at NOLA, waiting for Case results to be announced. "The whole team was so anxious; we were holding hands, laughing, smiling and almost crying. It was an amazing experience to see how much work everyone put in and how much everyone had grown."
How did AMA help you get to where you are now? "AMA helped me gain confidence and skills that have allowed me to present well in front of coworkers and clients. In the beginning of the Apprentice Program at Staples, my classmates and I had small presentation competitions. I won the first four. Honestly, I owe it to AMA. AMA prepared me very well when it comes to speaking and presenting. Also, learning to be creative with presentations and find a way to stand out among others."
Thank you Ashley for sharing with us! It's awesome to hear from a leader who is successful in life.
