MAY 2019 MIRUS MARVEL OF THE MONTH – ASHLEY L.
While she may be nicknamed Smalls, this month’s Mirus Marvel, Ashley L., is nothing short of a HUGE asset to the Mirus field marketing field team.
Upon receiving high praises from the entire Mirus office team about our positive experiences in working with Ashley, Marketing & Operations Specialist Jeannine B. affirmed that our clients and third party contacts are extremely pleased with her as well, most recently with the on-premise White Claw promotions at Moonshine Beach. “Our client at White Claw Hard Seltzers said he has full confidence that his brand is taken care of, that we will place the best person on-site to represent them, and everything will run smoothly,” Jeannine said. “The manager of the location said our people have been the best he’s seen; they’re always so engaging, prepared, and are never on their cell phones.”
Ashley is a primary representation of a brand ambassador who embodies our Mirus core values, exuding that of strong leadership, commitment and determination, consistency, honest and ongoing communication, teamwork, and pursuing growth and learning. We appreciate her enthusiasm and passion for her work that transcends just that of the field marketing industry and expands into everything she does.

What is your favorite thing about being in the experiential marketing industry and why?
I find the whole sales process interesting and consider it a personal challenge, ever since I was young. I was one of those kids whose parents described them as being able to “sell ice to a eskimo.”
What’s your favorite activation you’ve worked with us and why?
I found my favorite beer brand because of Mirus: Unibroue. Having the opportunity to work Beerfest celebrations with them in Las Vegas was so much fun – Belgian style ales all day!
Can you tell us how working for Mirus has affected your life or what motivates you to work hard at Mirus?
Having access to regular demos and work has been incredibly beneficial for me. I moved from the east coast and completely started my life over in 2015. Promotions allowed me to support myself while not jumping right back into a 9-5 job. I had been in medical admin, specifically with mental health, prior to moving and basically had no life outside my office. So my promotional career is me living my best life, no matter how cliché that sounds.
Other than your work, what is something in your life that you are passionate about?
I am passionate about healthy, sustainable living. My significant other grew up on a farm in Michigan, and together we are starting small urban farm here in San Diego that is going to focus on educating the public on how to grow their own foods with organic practices and support local wildlife like bees. It’s still new, but it is a very exciting project. You would be surprised how little people know about plants nowadays. Here’s an example of one thing people may not know: if I want a strawberry plant in my yard, I must get at least two plants, because a single one will not grow strawberries. Why? For any plant that bears fruit, you must get at least two plants so that they can pollinate each other.
P.S. Ashley L. reached out to the Mirus office team last month to share some brand ambassador recycling initiatives through TerraCycle, which kick-started our “Going Green” blog post.
