Ashley Rothwell-Campagna ’95
“Rowland Hall laid the foundation for who I am and taught me many things that I have carried into my adult life—most notably confidence, a strong work ethic, and persistence. I was lucky enough to be a Rowmark Ski Academy student beginning in eighth grade and went on to ski for an NCAA Division 1 program at St. Lawrence University in New York for which I was named MVP my freshman year. I learned how to be responsible, self-sufficient, and confident. I experienced the ups and downs of competition and all that comes with success and failure. Just because I work hard doesn’t always mean I am going to make it. But I can never give up, and that’s what I learned from my experience at Rowland Hall.

After college I spent roughly 10 years in an advertising career in San Francisco before taking the plunge to open my own business. Owning a business had always been a dream of mine, and fashion is my passion, so on September 8, 2007, I married the two concepts and opened Apt. 202 Boutique, named after my apartment number in San Francisco, in the 9th and 9th area of Salt Lake City. I spent a year conducting market research and preparing myself for the opening with the hopes that it would be well received. Here I am years later, with a beautiful new location that also houses my husband’s business, Salon MC (a hair salon). We bought and remodeled the building and together we enjoy a wonderful clientele and two businesses that we are proud to own and operate. My store is truly a unique shop. I love fashion and I love styling, but I also understand that many women appreciate a little help getting dressed, and that’s where I come in. Whether you are a repeat customer or a first-time shopper, I take time to help customers choose the right outfit for the occasion—be it a cocktail party, wedding party or just some great day-to-day pieces. I take the stress and labor out of shopping and make it a fun and easy experience.”
