Meet The Centriq Team: Jason Ashley
Tell us about your journey into technology training.
Since I was in college, I’ve been tinkering with computers. My roommates came to me with their computer problems. Later in life, I had my own handyman business, which included home computer repair and networking for small business. I was self-taught up until 2020; life-changes catalyzed my call to our friend and radio legend, Russ Mondry, to learn and certify in IT. It seemed like most IT people were doing well and staying in their jobs despite the challenges in the world. Now I am a proud Centriq grad.
How do you prefer to start your day?
I prefer to start my day with a cup of coffee and outdoor air. It used to be about 5 cups of coffee, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
How do you prefer to end your day?
At the end of the workday, I prefer to look back on what I tasks I completed, schedule tasks I know I need to complete within the next few days and try to stay organized.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
When not working, I am usually outdoors, especially in the summer months. My mountain bike needs me to use it more this summer, and I’m looking forward to it, headphones in, movie instrumentals playing and some warm air and sunlight.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
Upskilling and ongoing professional development is very important to me. I know what it is like to not have those opportunities so I can tell you with absolutely sincerity, helping people enroll in classes, enhancing their careers and their lives is the biggest reason I enjoy working with Centriq Training.
