"Lauren from Career Contessa here—the lady lucky enough to have a job that requires getting the inside scoop behind women’s careers—and today I’m thrilled to share a snapshot of how Simply Stylist host and Pursuit of Shoes blogger, drugs Ashley Torres made the leap from accountant to senior manager of social strategy for REVOLVE Clothing." Following a straightforward career path, Ashley started her career working as an accountant and passing her CPA exam. However, it didn’t take long for Ashley’s creative side to lead her to a new path toward social media and fashion. After ditching her corporate accountant gig, Ashley worked her way into becoming a buyer for HauteLook and let her inner fashionista (and shoe closet!) be showcased daily on her blog. Thanks to her blog and hard work, HauteLook asked Ashley to become their social media guru. It was an instant match made in fashion, social and number crunching heaven. Now, a senior manager for social strategy for REVOLVEClothing, she is able to embrace her passion for fashion while not letting go of her analytical past. It doesn’t get much better than that! Didn’t know number crunching was involved in a social media career? Head to Career Contessa where Ashley breaks down the ins and outs of working in social media!
