Movin’ On Up takes pride in recognizing outstanding Express Employment Professionals associates who’ve been acknowledged by one of our Express offices. Every associate we put to work has a story to tell, and we want to celebrate the accomplishments of the individuals who come to work for us.
This month’s associate spotlight recognizes an associate who is a great example of the spirit of Express – Ashlee Washington from the Royal Oak, MI Express office.
A Serious Student
Ashlee is currently a junior at the University of Detroit Mercy where she’s studying bio-chemistry in order to pursue her dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. Despite juggling an already heavy class schedule, Ashlee still takes on regular assignments with her local Express office in Royal Oak.
The Royal Oak office often calls on Ashlee to fill a position for a client, and, as long as it doesn’t interfere with her school work, she is always up for the challenge. “Ashlee is truly our go-to worker,” Steven Davis, owner of the Royal Oak Express office, said. “She is articulate, well-spoken, and adapts quickly to new environments.”
A Hard Worker
No matter the assignment, whether it’s filling in for a receptionist, working a marketing event, or passing out promotional material, Ashlee always wows Express clients by being on time, dressed to impress, and having a can-do attitude. “Every client Ashlee has worked for has provided wonderfully positive feedback, often noting how quickly she caught on and how professionally she carries herself,” Steven said.
In a recent assignment, Ashlee filled in as the receptionist at a local business while an employee was on vacation. When Ashlee’s assignment ended, the owner of the company sent a note to Express commending Ashlee’s performance. “Ashlee is the type of person I want to work for me,” the owner said. “If she weren’t in school, she’d have a job offer today!”
A Caring Volunteer
Despite her busy school schedule and temporary assignments, Ashlee still finds time to give back to her community. She currently volunteers for GM’s Student Corps, a select group of 11 interns from the University of Detroit Mercy. The group works to mentor students in the area and organize community service projects. Ashlee has also volunteered to do beautification work on the property of the Cody School in Detroit, and she has worked with Detroit Children’s Hospital.
Ashlee’s impeccable customer service, giving heart, and contagious smile make her a great example of the Express spirit. We’re thankful to have her as an Express associate and wish her luck with her studies, the Medical College Admission Test she’ll be taking this fall, and in her future career.
