Career Planning Team

Ashleigh Best

Director, Career Planning

Originally from a small town “next door” to Wooster, Orrville, I was thrilled to come back to my home community in August 2015. I have spent 15+ years in higher education working in career planning, leadership education, and community engagement. My academic background includes a Bachelor in Business Administration from Kent State University and a Master of Arts in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University (BGSU). While at BGSU, I found my professional niche at small liberal arts institutions through various internship experiences.

I love The College of Wooster community because we uniquely and holistically prepare students for their short term and long term professional goals while simultaneously supporting their personal development. I am energized by working with college students and challenging them connect their academics and out-of-the-classroom experiences to their future goals in a caring, fun, and supportive environment.

I live here in Wooster with my husband, Jamie, and daughters McKenna and Finnley. I love fitness and teach various group exercise classes on-campus and in the community. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends exploring our vibrant community!
