This week EC San Francisco welcomed back Student Services Manager Ashley, who has been on maternity leave since April. Ashley’s job is to oversee the Accommodations and Student Services functions of the school, looking for ways to constantly improve the experiences for EC SF students. She has many years of experience in international and English language education, and we are very excited to have her back!
Ashley, tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m happy to be back at EC SF after having been away for six months on maternity leave. In May, my husband and I were blessed with a beautiful and healthy baby girl. She is full of smiles and bring so much joy to our family.
I’m native to California but have spent many years living on the East Coast and abroad. I love talking to students about the United States. I am a firm believer that travel is equally as important to your education as being in a classroom. Travel and education are my passions. Before completing my Masters in International Education, I taught and/or traveled to 17 countries. Some of the most memorable were England, Belize and Malawi.
How long have you been working at EC?
What is the best thing about your position at EC?
The best part of my position at EC SF are all the amazingly diverse, well-traveled and interesting people I get to share my days with. From the staff to the students, I am perpetually broadening my understanding and appreciation for the world.
What is your favorite/most memorable experience abroad?
My favorite experience abroad was the summer I spent three weeks island hopping through Greece. Rarely did I sleep in a bed. Most of the time I slept on beaches, boats and tree houses.
