Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Sayles.
Hi Ashley, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Originally from Queens, New York, Ashley Sayles is a Baltimore- based nursing faculty member at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, founder & CEO of The ReNegade Resume, LLC, social media consultant, pediatric primary care nurse practitioner, and former travel pediatric ICU nurse
Ashley is a first-generation Jamaican American woman born of a carpenter and nurse. Growing up, Ashley was a stellar student and avid dancer, taking tap dance for over 15 years. During her time at the world-renowned Bronx High School of Science, Ashley’s passion for community service, Black empowerment, and extracurricular involvement truly blossomed.
Ashley went on to attend the illustrious Howard University earning a degree in sports medicine and continued on the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing where she earned a bachelor’s and masters in nursing and advanced practice nursing respectively.
Ashley’s social media brand focus healthcare/ nursing, motivation/ empowerment and fashion/ lifestyle.
When Ashley isn’t teaching students, working with resume clients, or social media consulting with brands you can find her in the kitchen creating unique meals and desserts, at the park with her dog babies, or on a flight exploring a new city or country!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I’ve achieved many goals thus far in life but there were many bumps on the road. During my first semester of nursing school, I lost my father suddenly. Not too long after, I lost my grandmother and was sure I couldn’t continue on. But the values and work ethic they both instilled in me kept me going!
We’ve been impressed with The ReNegade Resume, LLC, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
The ReNegade Résumé, LLC was born in 2019 after our founder, Ashley Sayles, realized the great need for nursing- focused résumé and career services. In becoming more active on social media, Ashley began to connect with nurses and aspiring nurses from all over the country and many would ask for résumé and career advice through these channels. Ashley decided to create the ReNegade Résumé to offer affordable career preparation and management services that nurses can trust. In the first 6 months since its launch, the ReNegade Résumé has helped over 100 nursing professionals curate a résumé that they feel represents their best professional self.
