It can be difficult to describe just how special your institution is to prospective students that haven’t experienced it firsthand. Thank goodness for Ashlie Perry! Ashlie’s specialty is taking what you want students to know about your institution and communicating it in a way that makes them feel like they know who you are and how you’re different from all the rest. But it doesn’t stop there. Ashlie has a knack for recognizing creative opportunities within communications. Whether it’s a cool graphic, a custom gif, or a segmentation opportunity, Ashlie will spot it and take the steps necessary to make it happen. You can trust that your communications are in good hands when Ashlie is holding the pen.

When she’s not making your communications hop off the page, you can find Ashlie:

1. Trying out new board games with her husband, Nick.

2. Obsessing over her baby nephew.

3. Snuggling with her dogs, Bernie and Bug.

4. Making fun of Ted Magdzinski, our Director of Slate Communications and Ashlie’s longtime friend.

5. Explaining how the spelling of her name came from her being rebellious and changing it in middle school.

How did Ashlie spend her free time over the past year? By renovating her home into what DIYers dream of!
