Alumna Ashley Gillin Interviewed by Namra Consulting

August 17, 2022

Alumna Ashley Gillin (‘19) was recently interviewed by her coworkers at Pawtucket-based marketing company Namra Consulting.

Gillin–who has been working with Namra for several years and was made their Creative Director last year–spoke at length about how her arts education prepared her for her professional career.

Among other things, Gillin says her art degree helped to teach her to think critically and to give and take constructive criticism. Similarly, she says her professional work in the art world–both in galleries and doing private commissions–prepared her for working with customers and businesses in her current role.

Gillin speaks at length about the overlap between physical art practice and digital creative work. “For creative people, there’s always going to be jobs and opportunities.”
