Humans of Appareo | Meet Ashley

Meet Ashley, Office Receptionist at Appareo.

Describe your job in 25 words or less.

I take care of miscellaneous things around the office to help make sure everything runs smoothly.

What drives you to achieve great results in your work?

Knowing that what I’m doing is helping others. Whenever someone notices a change I made around the office, or lets me know that the project or event I helped with went well, it really makes my day!

Any random facts about you that you want to share with us?

  • I’ve been learning French for about a year now.
  • I competed in dog obedience with my dog Tucker when I was in 4-H and we made it to state six times.
  • I love to go pheasant hunting! Pheasant is one of my favorite things to eat.

What might someone be surprised to know about you?

In college I majored in Illustration and I’m working (very slowly) on a webcomic in my spare time.

What can you simply not resist?

Funyuns. Which is why I haven’t bought a bag since at least 2013.

Before working at Appareo, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I was a dog bather at a pet salon. I got to see all kinds of dogs from 20 year old toy poodles, to a Malamute (who I swear was part wolf) that was four feet tall at the shoulders!
