Presidio Profiles: Samuel J. Ashe II

Samuel J Ashe II

What brought you to work at Presidio?

Something about the niche of malpractice insurance sounded very interesting to me. As a marketing professional and aspiring marketing consultant I wanted to get experience engaging communities in as many different industries as possible. Presidio has already proven to be a great environment and I learn something new everyday!

What’s the most fun thing about your position so far?

Finding different ways to appeal to new and current clients is what makes my job fun. From social media, to email marketing to even traditional print marketing it’s all interesting, engaging our community of health professionals and health facilities with useful information. 

Do you have any hobbies that occupy your time outside of work?

I tend to make my hobbies part of my professional repertoire so filmmaking and music are both things that I find rewarding, challenging at times but ultimately fun. They say, do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. That being said, trying new foods from different cultures is a new hobby of mine. Most recently I tried Ethiopian food and can’t wait to try more!

Who’s your greatest advocate, and why?

My greatest advocate is my family! Since they’ve never been known to mince words with me they make sure I’m as grounded as possible, ego checked in critiquing my work. Having such critical eyes on my works from early on has shaped my aesthetic for quality.

If you could have a Starbucks drink named after you, what would be in it?

Sorry guys, I don’t drink coffee(despite my love for coffee ice cream) so my Starbucks drink would not have any in it! My drink would be called the “Sammy” and it would have Green Tea, Strawberry Lemonade and Ginger Beer. Shaken, not stirred.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in life?

Don’t wait for anything you can do today! I have learned that the truly successful ventures in my life have happened due to throwing caution to the wind and going out and getting it. Things that haven’t ended well always started with more hesitation than warranted. Turn those maybe’s into why nots!?
