Where Exceptional Begins

Ashley Sams '15

Hometown: Alliance, OH

Major: Human Resource Management and Marketing

Interests: Traveling, photography, blogging, DIY, flying and all things social media

Hello! I’m Ashley and I graduated from #MountUnion in May of 2015. Since then, I have found my home to be still in Alliance at the university where I am currently Social Media Specialist in the Office of Marketing.

While I was at Mount Union, I studied marketing, human resource management and Spanish. I was a member of the women’s varsity soccer team, studied abroad in Spain, held internships in the Office of Marketing and Center for Global Education and also worked in the MAAC and University Store.

I currently help manage this blog, as well as our other social media accounts. If you’d like to be a writer for the blog or are interested in learning more about the Social Team, email me at samsam@mountunion.edu.
