”As an Alumnus from the class of 2008 and a graduate from the ESPM program, I was thrilled when NU reached out to me to hear more about my story and life after Northwood. For the past six years I have immersed myself into the event industry and although it’s crazy, it’s a great fit for me. I have worked on events for the Chrysler Group, including Camp Jeep events, FIAT Pop Up galleries, corporate employee days and several major auto show events. Currently, I am an account manager for the Freeman Company and work on the Microsoft account out of the Seattle, WA office. This is a new role that I decided to take on, and so far I love every minute of it. It was a big move, as I had spent the past 28 years in Michigan, but Washington is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier.”
More recent graduates Lauren Griewski, Jay Duncan, Nick Timko, and Rachel Burton have been highly focusing on the sports aspect of ESPM. Experiences with the Olympics, the basketball team of Southern Methodist University, and the racing industry, they’re showing new avenues for future graduates.
Ashley recently made a move across the country to continue her ESPM industry dreams. From the coasts of Michigan, to the Pacific Coast, her ESPM experience is following her.
