Get to know Ashley even better with staff secrets about one of our Production Managers:

Originally from Aurora, OH, Ashley went to The Ohio State University for her Bachelors in Fine Arts, Art and Technology and Savannah College of Art and Design for a Masters in Arts and Art Administration. She first got into video production when she started working at a Mom & Pop video store at age 13 and has loved film for as long as she can remember. After taking a “video art” class as an undergrad, Ashley says she was hooked and the rest is history.

What many people don’t know about Ashley is that she hopes to visit all 7 continents, wants to learn how to play the electric guitar and she is related to three presidents! “Talk about pressure to succeed,” Ashley jokes. Her favorite quote by Eleanor Roosevelt truly emphasizes her optimistic mindset and hardworking attitude:” Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift, that’s why they call it ‘the present’”. Ashley was once a volunteer camp counselor at a camp for youth impacted by HIV/AIDs, which speaks volumes to her greatest hope of making a positive impact on the world beyond her life.

When she is not at our office, Ashley loves to travel, go see live music, munch on some guacamole and tend to her multiple terrariums. She is our go-to team member for a bad pun and a good laugh. Ashley is a kid at heart, which makes her an excellent co-worker because her whimsical demeanor can always cheer you up when the days get stressful. Her keen eye for detail and out-of-the-box thinking makes her a true asset to our Crews Control team.
