Aleshia Wisch

MBA - Human Resources Management

A little bit about me...

Hello, my name is Aleshia Wisch. I am from Northeast Ohio in a small town called Geneva-on-the-Lake. I am a mother of three wonderful boys who are the light of my eye and my inspiration for everything I set out to do. My husband and I have been happily together for 12 years and still going strong. In addition to taking care of our three children, we also own and operate a small cleaning company. Although it is hard work, we love it. We have and will continue to put our heart and soul into making it a success. Eventually, we would love for our children to take over the business. In our spare time, we love to go on bike rides, go to the beach (when weather permits), watch movies, and hang out with friends. We are a silly family who also love to play pranks on each other.

Now onto who I am as a student. I have been an Ashford student since April of 2012. Initially, I worked hard to attain my Associate’s Degree in Organizational Management. When I graduated in June of 2014, I did so with honors of Summa Cum Laude and I was also inducted to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. From here, I re-enrolled to attain my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting of which I am a graduate of as of April 2016. During my Bachelor courses I was inducted to three different honor societies: Golden Key International Honor Society, Alpha Sigma Lambda, and Sigma Beta Delta. During my entire experience from the beginning I was added to the Dean’s List each quarter as well. As you can see, I take my education very seriously. I love learning and opening up my mind to thousands of possibilities. My initial objective when I came to Ashford was to become a CPA, but over time my focus has been swerved more to the human behavior in the corporate atmosphere. My new goals is to become a Human Resource Manager.

My mentoring experience has also changed me as a leader. I have been a CHAMPS mentor now for about a year. I have had the privilege to meet and mentor some great people. Knowing what it was like for me in the beginning of my educational journey, I am more than happy to help those who are just starting out. Personally, I didn’t know anyone with Ashford and I took a lot of time not only going through my classes, but finding the different resources available to students. Over time I became pretty confident in where my resources were so I was able to focus on just my school work. This paid off when I was asked to become a mentor. I looked at it as an opportunity to give back by guiding someone through their academic journey. Rather than working through countless hours of navigating, they would be able to focus on their work. Also, the connection is of great importance. I have learned the importance of networking even with just other students and staff. It helps you have the full college experience. Seeing that we are online students, it is rare that another student will live close by. Being part of this program is being a part of something much greater than myself. I always find myself learning so much from my Mentees, and I love seeing them excel.

So, with all this being said, welcome to the program. I hope you get as much out of it as I do.
