Ashley MilTaking a risk:

Writes SU Business Communication grad Ashley Mil: I left my corporate job in PR to pursue my passions in fitness, yoga, blogging and all things wellness! I had the opportunity in my career to make a decision; either stick to the path I was already on or take a huge risk and create the life I’ve been dreaming of ... I found myself dreading going to work and itching to get out of my 9-5 desk job any chance I got... I finally decided I want more than that and I won’t settle! I know that I can create the life I truly want to live and I am taking things into my own hands instead of someone else’s! Cheers to new beginnings, new challenges, all the change and a life worth living. 

Best of luck to you, Ashley, as you pursue your dreams! (Photo from Facebook)
