Well Devils Ambassadors

Living on campus can be a huge adjustment for many students! Navigating life with a roommate, moderating a schedule, figuring out a diet that works and forming connections can all be factors affecting students’ time at ASU. Well Devil Ambassadors are student workers who live in the residence halls and aim to help students thrive while living on campus and seek to increase student engagement, retention and success on campus.

Being a part of Wellness at ASU as a Well Devil Ambassador means uniquely engaging in our mission of building an ASU student community that embraces physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being of self and others as a hallmark of the Sun Devil Experience. We do this through the Sun Devil Way, exemplifying achievement, engagement and responsibility. In the process, employees will gain vital experiences to help them live a healthier life and develop professional portfolios by enhancing communication, critical thinking and leadership skills. Our goal is to serve as a support that enriches your academic, personal and career success.

How are we doing it?

  • Assessing student health and wellness needs
  • Delivering health education to peers
  • Encouraging environments that promote healthy living, decision-making and student engagement.
  • Offering support, education to students in the residence halls and across campus
  • Providing access to resources right where students live

Ashley PeakeHometown: Chandler , AZ

Major: Biochemistry (Medicinal Chemistry) and Minor in English Literature

Current Community: Barrett, The Honors College

About Me: As a Pharmacy Technician, Human Event Teaching Assistant, the Volunteer Chair for the NACURH 2018 Conference, a member of Page Turners, and a Well Devil Ambassador stress management is an essential part of my life. The two main ways in which I deal with this stress is through running and practicing yoga. My passion for running has lead me to finishing two marathons (and counting). Additionally, I hope to eventually become a certified yoga instructor in order to lead others through the practice of balance and control. My main interest is the study of what it means to be human. This is the main reason why I am studying both Biochemistry and English Literature, because I believe that the answer to this question is found in both biological sciences and social sciences. I hope to get involved with Teach for America or Fulbright after I complete my Undergraduate Degree, and then I plan on going to Physical Therapy School to get my Doctorate of Physical Therapy and my Masters in Public Health or Global Health. I would eventually like to provide long term rehabilitation services to physically disabled children. Additionally, I would like to create a program that provides long term health services as well as classes in English to refugee families in America.

I believe balance and mindfulness are the key to a happy life and hope to pass that along in my position as your Well Devil Ambassador!
