Ashley McGowan

partnership manager in Chicago, Illinois

Hi! I'm Ashley - a 20-something chick residing in the wonderful city that is Chicago, IL.

During the day, I am a tireless Advertising Gal. My account managemnt team and I work to ensure several elements are present at the client table: 1) insightful strategy 2) outstanding creative and 3) integrated thinking. I strongly believe that as long as these elements are present, the adversiting will do its' job for clients.

In the evening, I'm am working on something wonderful: MAFA Chicago. MAFA (Mosic Alumni and Friend Association) is an organization aimed at promoting diversity within the advertising and communications industy. We officially launched this summer, and are currently working to bring professional development, mentoring and networking opporutnies to our memebers.

On the weekends you ask? I rely heavily on retail therapy. The catch is - I love a good deal! A heaping chunk of my time is spent searching the racks for "gems". This has resulted in a closet overflowing with bright colors and interesting textures.

That's me in a nutshell. I invite you to explore my world. Drop me a note if you have any questions, I would love to hear from you!
