You’re Excellent! But Am I?

What does it mean to be excellent? And if we are measuring that in terms of someone else’s definition, how do we know? For Ash, the key to excellence lies in defining that according to your values, not someone else’s. But getting to that is the hard part!

Ash Jones is an almost 2nd year student at Murdoch University after completing 1st year part time over 2 years. Ash works as a chiropractic assistant, is a mum of 3 and a wife of a fellow chiropractic student. She first thought about becoming a chiropractor whilst a patient, and the writing was on the wall after her first DGC in 2015 where she enrolled in Chiropractic a week before she started! Ash has worked in many industries from art to food to fashion both nationally and internationally and entered her chiropractic study as a mature age student. She believes her world experience has been vital to keep her focused on her journey, and acknowledge her position to be able to help her fellow students achieve their goals.
