Ashley is one of the most positive event staff we’ve came across yet! In a recent staffing pinch, Ashley stepped up to the plate to assist with managing a team of 10 brand ambassadors in the Indianapolis market. Her ability to go with the flow, step up last-minute as a leader, and keep a positive attitude throughout all of the fast changes was truly appreciated by the Oxford Marketing team!
How long have you been doing promos?
I have been promoting different brands and products for approximately 6 years now and I absolutely love my job!
Do you have a favorite Oxford Marketing event that you’ve worked?
My favorite Oxford Marketing event was for Nickelodeon’s World Wide Day of Play. Honestly I don’t know who had more fun me, the kiddos, the awesome and talented staff, or the parents? Probably a tie!
What do you enjoy most about being in this industry?
One thing I’ve always enjoyed about being in the promotional industry is meeting new people. This job really allows you to keep an open mind always getting to experience new brands and products. I am a free spirit so traveling is also an added bonus! My favorite thing about my job is the fact that it always keeps you on your toes and surrounded by like minded people who have upbeat energetic attitudes.
In your opinion, what skills should every brand ambassador possess?
Every brand ambassador should be knowledgeable, poised, friendly and have an open-minded, positive outlook upon life. You don’t always know what’s in store and you must be willing to hop on board, at any given moment. Sometimes life is fast paced and we are natural problem solvers! Never let anything pass you by, always give your best effort!
What are some hobbies that you enjoy when you aren’t working events?
I am an outdoors girl! In my free time I love to go hiking through nature trails, sight see, and find adventure! I love volunteering at my local animal shelter and do so regularly. I am inspired by Rembrandt; art takes me to my happy place! Not to brag but I am also a local karaoke star (or so I’d like to think). I take my grandpa twice a week, he is the real sensation. They call him Earl the Pearl. We think it is hilarious when we tell people “he is my old man” and then give them a wink.
