About FGCU: “FGCU has helped me become the teacher and person I’ve always wanted to be. I started at FGCU because of the palm trees. However, I’m proud to be an alumna of FGCU because it gave me opportunities to leave a legacy, venture outside my comfort zone, meet so many amazing people, and develop the courage and knowledge to succeed in my career. I am proud to be an Eagle.”

From nominator Gateway Charter Assistant Principal Peggy Leis: “Ashley is, by far, one of the best teachers I have ever worked with and an inspiration to all those starting out in the field. She’s a credit to FGCU and its education department.”

From: Lives in Estero
Degree: Bachelor’s in Finance

Occupation: Trust administration and investment associate, FineMark National Bank & Trust
