Just over five years ago, in November 2009, Ashley Campbell started her first day at Digital Risk as a Data Capture Analyst at the company’s office in Maitland. Since then, as Digital Risk grew and prospered, Ashley too spread her wings and achieved many firsts.
Within two months of her start date, Ashley was promoted to team lead of data capture; it was her first leadership role in a corporate setting. About nine months later, she was promoted to a manager position within the Data Capture team, which eventually grew into the Centralized Processing department.
“I remember Digital Risk being very family-like, and all of us were intimately involved with company operations,” Ashley said. “The co-founders would frequently visit with us to see how we were doing.”
Approximately two years into her role as a manager, she was asked to help onboard and manage a project that was a first for the company. The project was a limited underwriting scope, which required her to manage the entire mortgage loan life cycle, including data capture, processing and underwriting.
“Digital Risk always challenged me to learn and adapt, and we were always moving at lightning speed,” Ashley said. “I began to crave the thrill of growing, so once I hit a calm in the storm, I had to search elsewhere for another challenge.”
It was this mentality that led Ashley to begin her first venture as a distributor for It Works! Global, an all-natural skin care and supplement product line. She now has over 12 people working under her and frequently hosts product sampling parties, consultations and marketing booths at community events.
Throughout this whirlwind, she also gained several close friendships with fellow D-Riskers. She and her teammates frequently held get-togethers outside of the office, such as a kickball tournament, volleyball games, bowling contests and picnics. In fact, Ashley actually met her fiancé, Miles, while attending a crawfish festival with fellow D-Riskers. If it wasn’t for these friendships, she may never have met Miles!
“Miles has seen my success at Digital Risk since we started dating, and he is astounded!” Ashley said. “At first, he thought this company was unreal because it was growing so quickly, and I was budding right along with it.”
Now, as a fiancé, she is planning her wedding to take place in November 2015, which is just two days shy of her 6-year anniversary at Digital Risk. Ashley is still a manager within the Centralized Processing department, but she now works in the company’s Lake Mary location. She also took on her first committee position, joining the office’s Social Committee. In-between her job and wedding planning responsibilities, she still runs her It Works! Global distribution.
“It has been incredible to see Digital Risk grow to the global force it is today,” Ashley said. “Everything seems so real and big now, and I feel lucky because I quite literally fell into this great opportunity.”
Nine months from now, she will accomplish another first, becoming a wife and taking on a new surname, Thalmueller. Ashley confirmed that several D-Riskers and friends she met through Digital Risk are invited to the wedding. We wish her and Miles all the best!
