In the Field Friday: Ashley Garlick

By: Nicole McMullen

2020 Outstanding Student, Ashley Garlick, is this week’s “In the Field Friday.” In May, Ashley received her Associate of Science in Agriscience Education. This fall, Ashley will transition to the Columbus campus to pursue her bachelor’s degree in Agriscience Education. Ashley is at home (Swanton, Ohio) this summer because her internship is right across the Michigan-Ohio border.

Wilbur-Ellis is a chemical company located in Dundee, Michigan, where Ashley’s responsibilities include customer relations, inventory, and ordering. Ashley works with customers to deliver chemicals and seeds, and she utilizes tracking inventory to ensure the orders she places are fulfilled. Team building and teamwork are a few skills Ashley has been able to enhance through her assignments.

“Do not be nervous to get started, instead jump right in and have confidence,” Ashley shared. Furthermore, Ashley is appreciative of her internship with a great company like Wilbur-Ellis. Through her experience, she has seen “why agriculture is such a great industry.”
