Ashley Rothwell-Camangna, Owner Apt. 202 Boutique (http://www.apt202boutique.com/)
Ashley Rothwell-Campagna grew up in Salt Lake City and attended Rowland Hall St. Marks/Rowmark Ski Academy. She went on to ski race at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York, before beginning her ten year Advertising career in San Francisco. In 2007, after years of research and dreaming, the doors to Apt. 202 Boutique (named after her apartment in San Francisco) open. The mission for the boutique was to provide women a place to experiment with their style and fall in love with fashion in a warm and inviting space. In 2012 the boutique relocated to a beautiful new building that Ashley and her husband, Mark Campagna, designed and built. The new location now houses both the boutique and Mark's salon, Salon MC, creating a wonderful one-stop destination for their clients to enjoy.
