Where are they Wednesdays: Stories of UNCW Spanish Alumni

Ashlea Burke Class of 2016, Spanish BA

Why did you study Spanish?

I originally placed in a higher Spanish and was initially going to do just a minor until Dr. Dennis encouraged me to pursue a major since it would only take one extra semester.

How do you use Spanish now?

I work in international education at a company called The Intern Group. I am a manager on our admissions team. I currently live in Santiago, Chile so I use Spanish all the time, and sometimes conduct interviews in Spanish.
