Women in finance: Ashley Male
By Melissa Brandon on 04/26/2018
"The more I put into my career, the more Schwab is willing to put into me," says Ashley Male, regional manager, Branch Solutions Consulting. "I've been at Schwab for more than 17 years and Schwab is always making sure that I have the necessary tools, knowledge, and backing to help our clients."
Based in Orlando, Ashley was encouraged to join Schwab by her husband (who works at the firm) and his colleagues. Ashley also has a passion for helping others safeguard their finances after her parents were given bad financial advice that had long-term implications on their lives.
Ashley had studied aviation management at Ohio State University and worked in sales before taking a job answering calls on Schwab's main customer service line. After obtaining her Series 7 license, Ashley moved to the advice group. In that role, she became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and was recognized as a top contributor. Ashley then became a Financial Consultant that supported about 4,000 Schwab employees and their financial plans before moving to her current role as southeast regional manager in the Managed Solutions Group.
"I love my work because I get to support the wide range of products and services Schwab offers our clients. Finding new ways to help and support our clients is and has always been my number one goal," says Ashley.
Away from work, Ashley and her husband love to spend time watching their twins play competitive basketball and taking Disney cruises together. Ashley says she focuses on financial literacy at home with her children and has been teaching them about money since the day they were born.
