Ashley is no stranger to Human Resources, acting as a strategic partner to a variety of businesses over the past 6 years by applying expert compliance knowledge and forward thinking to business growth. A graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in Psychology and minor in Sociology, Ashley began her career working for a small Professional Employer Organization working with 250 different businesses and aiding them with day-to-day human resources issues. She then moved to perform internal HR for a growing multi-state, 500+ employee group in the electrical field. Then went on to serve as a Senior HR Generalist for 3 years at one of the largest Professional Employer Organizations in the country. Most recently Ashley serves as an HR Supervisor overseeing multiple Human Resource Advisors who are guiding small businesses with compliance, employee relations, policy development and more.
Ashley was elected chancellor of the HR council within her organization, which was comprised of 13 HR members across the nation to lead the group in process improvements for the Human Resource Team. She is PHR, SPHR, and SHRM-SCP certified and continues to advance her knowledge of Human Resources by staying abreast of ever-changing legislation and continuing education courses.
When not working, she is an advocate for women’s wellness, enjoys learning about nature, and spending time with her husband and dog outdoors.
What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?
Be open to change and learning new things. Human Resources is an ever-changing field and is never cut and dry. It keeps your day to day interesting and exciting. I would encourage any new HR professional to be open and curious to learning more and challenge them in obtaining their credentials from HRCI or SHRM.
