My name is Ashley Funderburk and I work as the Content Marketing Assistant at Optimized Assets. I originally attended WCU as a Music Education major, but found PR somewhere along the way and instantly fell in love! That’s a long story for a rather rainy day. College was a huge learning experience for me. It was a roller coaster ride for sure, but somehow I have managed to find exactly where I belong. I moved home back in 2012 after spending almost five amazing years in the mountains, making the best friends a girl could ask for and creating some unforgettable memories.
While I 100% think people should pursue college degrees, there is no denying the fact not everyone is cut out for school. I am only saying this because I am one of those people. When I moved back home I had planned to attend a local University to finish my almost complete Bachelor’s Degree and life happened and I welcomed my amazing son Michael into the world. I would not change a minute of this, because being a mom is the biggest blessing I could have ever hoped for.
I consider myself to be a highly motivated individual that is very passionate about music, content marketing, research, writing, campaigns, event planning, social media, public speaking, working in a team setting, and like everyone else out there I am constantly eager to learn something new.
Side note: Reese cups are my weakness. Music and PR have my heart, along with my family and friends. Did I mention I LOVE coffee? Oh, and black and white pictures are my favorite.
