Ashleigh Musyt Best
Associate Director of Career Planning

Office Address: 031 Gault Library
Originally from a small town “next door” to Wooster, Orrville, I was thrilled to come back to my home community in August 2015. Prior to joining the APEX team as the Associate Director of Career Planning, I spent 10 years in higher education working in career planning, leadership education, and community engagement. My academic background includes a Bachelor in Business Administration from Kent State University and a Master of Arts in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University (BGSU). While at BGSU, I found my professional home at small liberal arts institutions through various internship experiences.
I love Wooster because we uniquely and holistically prepare students for their short term and long term professional goals while simultaneously supporting their personal development. I am energized by working with college students and challenging them connect their academics and out-of-the-classroom experiences to their future goals in a caring, fun, and supportive environment.
I live here in town with my husband, Jamie, two daughters McKenna and Finnley, and Shih Tzu, “Mischa-dog.” We spend our ‘free time’ with friends and family enjoying our vibrant community in Wooster, Akron, and Cleveland. It’s good to be home.
