Above: Ashley is our incredible Recruitment Consultant here at lululemon, and is one of the many reasons why we get to work with so many inspiring people each day.
What is your role at lululemon?
I am a “recruitment consultant” on the People Resources team. I hesitate to even talk about my title because I think it can be misleading… we’re involved in so much here at lululemon…. attraction, sourcing, community, training, coaching, mentoring… it’s a lot more than your typical “post and fill” recruitment role!!
What’s your favourite part of your workday?
Favourite part of my day would be walking down the halls of lululemon and seeing all the awesome people I’ve been a part of hiring and what their world looks like now! I LOVE hearing about the things that have changed in their lives since they started at lululemon, the goals they’ve achieved, and what their plans are for the future. It inspires me!
How do you think your co-workers would describe you?
I think my co-workers would probably describe me as positive, creative, friendly, passionate, redheaded, ambitious, determined, analytical, curious, and maybe even a bit ridiculous.
What ‘s your favourite yoga class? Why?
It changes, but at the moment it is hot yoga at West Coast Yoga… mainly because it is about 10 feet away from where I live and I don’t have to go far when I’m REALLY sweaty after class.
How do you usually sweat once a day?
Doing the grouse grind, yoga, running or dancing.
What’s one activity/fitness trend that you’ve been dying to try?
Barre Method / Dailey Method!!
What’s the last thing you did that scared you?
The last thing I did that really scared me was telling my amazing team that I am moving Scotland in 2010. It was an incredibly hard decision, but I have had “Exploring Europe” in my goals for the past 3 years and I am finally making it a reality.
If we were to see you during a workout, what would you be wearing?
lululemon, of course!
Chip Wilson grants you the ability to switch places with another person at lululemon for one day – who do you choose?
Amy, from our Community Legacies team! Amy has been an inspiration for me since the very first interview. As soon as I met her I was just so impressed with how eloquent she is, her commitment to the environment and sustainability, how she empowers the people around her, and just overall what a hilarious and amazing woman she is. It would be great gift to be able to see the world from her eyes for a day!
What are your words to live by?
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life … Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple and Pixar
