To be an architect just like her father is what Ashley Lightspeed envisioned when she was growing up. She enjoyed in her childhood age to accompany her father in their workstation where they sketched ideas and then made them real. Her craftsman and prototyping expertise can be traced back to her young age. It is amazing that today she has pivoted away from architecture but all the same she is now more involved in creation of the tomorrow of the business world. Follow Ashley Lightspeed on Twitter.
