Ashley James isn’t afraid to take on a challenge. When asked what advice she would give to upcoming Gadsden City graduates, she offers these words: “Do not box yourself in to what you think is possible. The possibilities are endless. And they are far and wide.” Ashley has held strong to this mindset as she pursued her education and the beginning phase of her career. She attended the University of Alabama where she majored in electrical engineering and minored in mathematics. After a stint with Alabama Power, she now works for Burns & McDonnell, an engineering consulting firm. She started in her company’s Fort Worth, TX office and recently relocated to their Atlanta office, tasked with bringing the firm’s anchor client to the Southeast and expanding her firm’s growth within their company. Ashley specializes in transmission and distribution practices.

If you know a successful Gadsden City alumnus who is thriving somewhere around the world, we would love to include them in the Our Titan Family is Going Places campaign.

They can upload a short video (less than two minutes) and a photo here. The video should be an introduction of themselves, a synopsis of what they do in their career, and the coolest work-related experience they’ve had so far.

Make sure the video is between :30 and 2 minutes. The photo should be of just them with a background that reflects what they are doing in their career. They should be sure to use their name (first and last) as the file name for the photo and the video.
Along with the photo and video, they’ll need to complete the short survey here.
