Graduate Excels in her Job as Engineering Assistant for Local Manufacturer

Ashly Brock never envisioned herself working as the lead engineering assistant at Lectrodryer, a local manufacturing company, but after graduating from the Richmond Campus with a double major in business administration-management and accounting, she has realized she has the foundation she needs to succeed in most any business environment.

Ashly first began working at Lectrodryer in a temporary position, filling in for a receptionist on leave. But after demonstrating her exemplary business skills on the job, the company hired her as an engineering assistant, and she was recently promoted from there to lead engineering assistant.

“Even though it’s been several years, the classes always stay with you.”

Ashly’s work at Lectrodryer is perfectly suited for her detail-oriented disposition, and she uses the technology skills that she gained at ANU every day on the job. “I do a lot of spreadsheets and make sure that everybody stays on target so that we can hit our ship dates,” she explained.  “Even though it’s been several years [since attending ANU], the classes always stay with you.”

Lectrodryer was recently recognized as a Distinguished Community Employer by the Richmond Campus due to its ongoing support of ANU and its graduates, and Ashly loves the family atmosphere and supportive coworkers that she has found there. Her supervisor is so pleased with her work that he has encouraged her to continue her education in the field of engineering.  “I definitely want to continue to pursue my career here,” Ashly said.
