Ashley Rothove was a military dependent who spent her entire life moving from state to state and school to school. The constant relocation eventually took a toll on her desire to learn, and she ended up having to repeat a grade. Ashley began to hang out with the wrong crowd, and she dropped out of high school in the 10th grade.
After dropping out of school, Ashley moved out on her own and found a minimum wage job. After she spent some time struggling financially and living paycheck to paycheck, Ashley began to realize how important having an education was and she made the decision to complete her high school education and earn a college degree.
Ashley enrolled into the Central Carolina Community College Adult High School Diploma program, and earned her Diploma in December of 2016. She decided to pursue a career in the healthcare industry, and was placed in a paid Work Experience opportunity with Universal Healthcare in Lillington as a Patient Care Assistant. After successfully completing her Work Experience, Universal Healthcare hired Ashley in a part-time position.
After Ashley successfully completing her paid work experience opportunity as a Patient Care Assistant, she was hired by Universal Healthcare as a Patient Care Aide in part-time unsubsidized employment earning $8.50 an hour.
