HOMETOWN: Ashley grew up in a small town in Iowa and considers herself a yankee at heart, but has been in Arkansas for almost ten years making the Natural State home sweet home. She still doesn’t understand why Arkansans call “pop” – “soda” or “shopping carts” – “buggies.”
EDUCATION: Ashley studied business at the U of A in Beebe.
PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND: Ashley has garnered quite a bit of professional event and administrative experience in her career thus far. Most notably working at an advertising and event planning and promotion agency for many years. Ashley joined the ARG team in 2014 and is a talented asset to the group. She has earned a couple of promotions since she first started with ARG and now serves as the Executive Project Coordinator. Although Ashley’s duties are extremely varied, they include taking care of event campaign coordination aspects, registration forms and applications, databases, sponsorship and VIP logistics as well as budgets, badges and a ton of the little conference details that all add up.
BABIES & FURBABIES: Ashley and her husband Matt welcomed their first human baby boy (Austin) into the world in August 2016. Ashley and Matt started their married life off right with two furbabies, Remi and Maci, who are quite the pair when put to the test. Remi, the sweetest German Shepherd is a big fan of treats, going for walks and snuggling, while Maci, a Labrador mix is super energized and never misses a beat, treat or meal!
