Ashley KruegerMeet Ashley Kruger!

Ashley is the Career Advisor Senior with the School of Business with University of Kansas.  She works one-on-one with students in career advising appointments, implements career programs and workshops with the career team, teaches a second year career readiness course, coordinates the School of Business Mentorship Program, and manages social media presence and web content.

Her first job was a paper route in her hometown of George, Iowa.  Every Tuesday evening in middle school she could be found folding papers in her parent's kitchen and delivering those folded papers around the neighborhood! "It was a good job for a middle school kid and taught me a lot about hard work and responsibility."  Since undergrad, Ashley has been in Student Affairs/Career Services.  "I started as a student Orientation Leader, learned more about career paths within student services through various experiences and internships and fell in love with Career Services!"

"I very much see the Achiever in my every day life--I'm pretty active and always love doing something, and every day I have a running to-do list of things I would like to accomplish that day. I'm the type of person who has to do something every day in order to feel accomplished--even if that something is making myself a good cup of coffee! :)"  (I completely agree with this as a fellow Achiever!)

If she wasn't working in career services, Ashley said "When I was younger, I always wanted to be an archaeologist. My undergraduate degree is in History and I have always loved learning about other cultures, people, and how they lived! I've always thought about being a nurse as well--I really like science and the idea of helping others in that way is appealing to me."
