Ashley Ross was born and raised in Marquette, MI. She shares a passion for the Marquette area and enjoys bringing new and creative ideas to the Upper Peninsula. After spending over 10 years in customer service and patient care, she decided to attend a web design training course through Thinkful’s Design Bootcamp. After completing the course, she began to see the possibilities of earning a living while not having to relocate her family.
Her experience in studying human behavior and human factors has given her great insights into the importance of creating a remarkable experience that turns satisfied customers into raving fans. In the past, she has worked with a mentorship-focused technology startup company called Mentor Mesh and is currently the community manager and chief UX and UI designer for Campfire CoWorks.
Besides working full time, she continues to be an avid learner and is currently enrolled in Stanford University’s Global Innovation Catalyst Program. Ashley is on a mission to inspire and educate others about the power of creating a user-centric interactive experience that will lead to business success. We are excited to listen and learn about the future UX and how it will have an impact on entrepreneurship on a global scale.
