Sending Off Miss Pennsylvania Ashley Schmider to Miss America!

This past Saturday, we had the pleasure of attending Miss Pennsylvania 2015 Ashley Schmider's Send Off Celebration held at the Club at Nevillewood! The beautiful event was put together by our dear client, Susan Weiss, who also happens to be Ashley's aunt. From sparkling crowns, to pink decor, the event was completely SPAtacular! 

Ashley is from the South Hills of Pittsburgh where she attended South Fayette High School, graduating as class Valedictorian in 2009. Ashley went on to pursue a major in economics and a minor in math at Duquesne University where graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2013.  While at Duquesne University, Ashley was involved with the Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society, Lambda Sigma Honor Society, Omicron Delta Epsilon Economics Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda, and the Strong Women, Strong Girls (SWSG) mentoring program. She also studied in China for one year to learn about international business. Ashley began mentoring with the Duquesne University chapter of Strong Women, Strong Girls her freshman year and helped to grow the chapter to a “Mega Chapter” as an executive director with over 50 mentors.

Ashley is a true vision of beauty - inside and out. But, that's not the only reason we love her! One glance at her social media profiles and you can see that she also actively participates in discussions on important topics (such as women's equality), and also leaves valuable tips on living a happy, healthy life (including how to protect your skin in the sun - a woman after my own heart). 

Now she needs our help to vote her into the semi-finals! Let's all step up our social media skills to bring home the crown and #GetAshThatSash!
