Ashley Buster '09

I graduated in May 2009 with a Bachelor of Science - Marketing. Upon graduation I married in June 2009 and began an extensive professional journey. 

Our Wedding June 6, 2009

Throughout my college years at UA Fort Smith, I worked at ABF Freight System, Inc as an intern. In October 2009, I became an Inside Sales Representative for the company and in March 2010 was promoted to an Account Manager in Birmingham, AL where my husband and I currently reside. Making the move from Fort Smith to Birmingham was definitely a challenge, but the experience in itself has been positive.

Moving to Birmingham!

Thanks to the Student Life at UA Fort Smith, I met wonderful friends and became a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority, which is a fantastic support system worldwide.

Now that I’m not a college student- I have found some free time! My husband and I enjoy traveling, spending time with our families, our 2 dogs – Roxie & Sadie, and spinning.

My education from UA Fort Smith enhances my life daily. My job consists of selling a “service” and I often refer to my skills learned in Professor Peerbolte’s class, Selling Strategies. Although that class currently applies to my job the most, the entire business program truly prepared me for a successful business career. I’m a proud alum and looking forward to being a lion for life!!
