Ashley Willis

Cullowhee, North Carolina

I am a senior at Western Carolina University double majoring in Accounting and Finance. I am active in various extracurricular activities serving as: President of the Finance Club, a member of Beta Alpha Psi, the former Philanthropy Chair for Delta Zeta Sorority, and a former officer of the Economics Club. I recently participated in a National Financial Planning Competition in Seattle, Washington where my partner and I represented Western Carolina University as one of the top eight teams in the United States. Following graduation in December 2014 I plan to begin a Masters of Accountancy Program.

My professional experience includes: completing an Audit Internship for Dixon Hughes Goodman in Asheville, NC, working as a Commercial Loan Officer Assistant for HomeTrust Bank in Waynesville, NC, interning with Morganton Savings Bank in Morganton, NC, and working as a Student Assistant in the Accounts Payable Department at Western Carolina University.

My honors and awards at Western Carolina University include: the Outstanding Finance Major Award in 2014, the Outstanding College of Business Student in 2013, a Cullasaja Distinguished Scholar in 2012, and honored four semesters by the Dean’s List.

I am from Morganton, NC, a small community about one hour from Asheville, NC. I enjoy being outdoors, swimming, camping, and reading in my hammock. I enjoy giving back to the community most recently I had the opportunity to spend a day of service with a group of children at an elementary in Atlanta, GA during the International Day of Literacy.
