The executive board member of the month goes to Ms. Ashley Woncheck, who is the Associate Director for the Nonprofit Division in PSMA. The Nonprofit Division is PSMA's newest division, which was established in the fall of 2016. The Nonprofit Division was created from PSMA’s prior community & social impact projects that the executive board worked on in previous years.
Ashley is in her junior year in the Smeal College of Business, and is majoring in Marketing. Over the summer she had the opportunity to intern as a Client Relationship Specialist at Management Science Associates in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is not only interested in Big Data and marketing analytics, which she got to explore at her job, but also has a passion for market research and creative writing.
Although it is her first year as part of the Penn State Chapter of the American Marketing Association, she is excited to have achieved the position as the Associate Director of the Nonprofit Division. She is not only involved with PSMA but is also, an active member of Eclipse, which is a THON organization and is also a member of Women In Business (WIB). In addition, Ashley has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and aspires to one day either open her own business or invent a product. She believes adaptability, experience and ingenuity are huge keys to success, in addition to having a true passion for what you do.
Her dedication and hard work can be seen in her accomplishments and we couldn’t be more proud of her. Way to go Ashley!
