Sales Rep, Laserlux.com
The last few years have been a series of ups and downs for Weslaco native Ashley Castillo, sales rep for Laserlux.com.
Married with a blended family of five kids, she has little time to enjoy her hobby of running. Somewhere between her dreams of becoming a nurse, and going to school for it, the universe threw her a curve ball. Life was put on hold when her youngest was diagnosed with leukemia.
“No school, no work, everything was put on hold for him,” she remembered. “Losing my father during that time was also difficult.”
Now with cancer behind them, Ashley is working towards her master’s in Healthcare Administration while repping for Laserlux.com, a toner manufacturer that also sells re-manufactured black ink cartridges, printers, and handles copier leases.
As the co-chair of the Chamber’s Ambassadors, she loves her work with them.
“I’m a people person and I’ve gotten really involved in doing it.”
A regular volunteer for St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Ashley is also member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.
“Having a child with cancer changes your views on things,” she admitted. “I’m excited about the new year and what it will bring.”
