This month, we are very proud and excited to shine the spotlight on one of LDPR’s superstar staffers, Ashley MontBlanc Day, who has been promoted to Account Director. Ashley is a results-driven, dynamic publicist who joined the LDPR family in 2006, and has been wow’ing us ever since. Her unique work style with clients, media and LDPR staffers is admirable. Ashley's earnest approachability, social savvy, humor and smart story telling is a powerful combination. Since joining the team, Ashley’s travels have taken her across the globe, from Scotland to Spain, Africa to Australia, Montana to the Bahamas. Therefore, we thought we’d check in with this globetrotter to get some travel tips and her viewpoints on agency life…
One of your most memorable travel experiences?
Traveling to Zambia with Sanctuary Retreats and Abercrombie & Kent. It was my first trip to Africa and was the most dramatically unique location I had been to – From the landscapes to the wildlife and the locals, it was an incredible adventure.
Any travel tips to share?
Be adventurous…Whether it is renting a car and driving on the "wrong" side of the road to see more of a country or trying a new activity, food, drink – Take it in. Traveling is your chance to walk in someone else's shoes. Learn, relax and be inspired!
Your "must-pack" travel item?
Sneakers and my iPod. Going for a run in a new location is a great way to see the area. (Also a good way to counterbalance all of the food and drink that I inevitably indulge in while traveling)
Favorite thing about working at LDPR?
My LDPR family – Both the staff and our clients. It is incredible to be able to work with a crew that inspires, supports and keeps me laughing!
