Ashley R.

Marketing Intern

I joined the Gardner Builders team as a Marketing Intern in the summer of 2021. This fall, I will be entering my junior year at the University of Minnesota, majoring in Marketing and minoring in Public Health. My interest and passion for marketing have grown as I’ve taken more major-specific courses, so I knew this was a path I wanted to pursue. I enjoy being able to brainstorm ideas, problem-solve, and think ahead for the future all while being creative and artistic. My main motivation is accomplishing goals and learning new skills each day I’m at Gardner. There’s so much to learn about marketing and the world of construction, and I’m excited to grow my experience. 

Outside of school and work, I enjoy hanging out with my friends, going to coffee shops and restaurants around the U of M campus. My family also takes our boat to the St. Croix River on the weekends in summer which I always look forward to. 

Favorite tool: Canva, for creative projects.

3 Fun Facts about me: 

I have been a competitive dancer all my life and was on the UMN Club Dance Team. 

I hope to travel abroad to either Spain or Italy in the Spring of 2022. 

I love traveling to warm places for vacation, like Mexico or Arizona, but in the winter, I love a good ski trip out to Colorado.
