ASHLEY MICHELLE Fowler
Tell us something fun about yourself that few people know: I'm a karaoke superstar. My song of choice: "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" by Shania Twain.
Favorite Vermont Escape: Cabot, VT is magical after a heavy snowfall. Everything is covered in white and the majesty of Vermont is on display.
Favorite Downtime Activity: There is nothing I find more peaceful and enjoyable than fishing on a Vermont lake, river, or pond without a care in the world. It's my happy place.
Favorite Super Hero: Who can choose just one? I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Storm- she was the first hero I saw that looked anything like me and she rocks at everything she does.
Favorite Social Media: Definitely Facebook. I like to think I'm Facebook popular.
What is the best career advice you have received? Just say yes.
Where do you see yourself professionally in ten years? Wherever my career takes me, I aspire to constantly champion the rights of those who lack a voice and promote access for the underrepresented. That's when I know I'm doing fulfilling work.
