I have been with Rotary for 2 months
Q: What do you enjoy about your job?
Ashley: The daily interaction with people whether it’s other employees or customers calling. I also like talking with the RAI’s as they are from all over the US, and I have had the chance to meet a few RAI’s and some were from my home state which is Massachusetts. So it’s nice to meet new people and get to know who you are talking with on the regular.
Q: What is your background with your current position?
Ashley: Before coming to Rotary I used to work at two different GM dealerships in Massachusetts for a total of 5 years as a receptionist in sales and in service. I was familiar with the 2 post lifts as I saw them on a daily basis in the stores.
Q: What is one thing about working in ServAll that people may not know?
Ashley: We are made up of a great group that works together. We all deal with different accounts, but at the end of the day we all work together as a team and you don’t seem to find that often. And food, there always seems to be food everywhere I look, and hey I am not complaining!
Q: What are the biggest challenges of your job?
Ashley: Since I am still new here, I am still learning as I go (meaning all the parts and lifts and lingo!), but my main focus is to make sure the stores are happy with ServAll by providing prompt service to get their lifts repaired. We get numerous phone calls a day, paperwork to process, and contact RAI’s for follow ups which can make for a lot of work. All this has to be juggled day to day to make sure we are getting lifts repaired in a timely manner at any given store.
Q: During your work career or personal life what are you most proud of?
Ashley: I’m proud that I have accomplished so many different goals, such as graduating Cum Laude at Johnson & Wales University for Business Management while working 3-4 jobs, and completed my bachelors in 3 years. Also training and competing my own personal horses at various levels, created and organized a charity trail ride and donated all the money to different organizations for the past 5 years. I always have ideas and little goals that I like to follow through with!
Q: What is one fun fact about you that people may not know?
Ashley: I am an “adrenaline junky,” I love fast cars, roller coasters, sky diving, bungee jumping, jumping horses (timed), wakeboarding, water skiing, jet skiing, etc.
Q: What do you enjoy doing in your time away from work?
Ashley: I am obsessed with horses….so I have been told by numerous people. I currently have 6 horses, 4 of those being miniatures, my retired quarter horse that was shown extensively since I’ve owned her (going on 16 years now) and a trail horse. So away from work, I am usually at the barn, riding, grooming, feeding tons of treats and spoiling them. I also have a spoiled boxer-coonhound named Bella, who loves to go hiking, or run free with the horses, (more like chasing them!) Aside from the obsession, my boyfriend Chad and I love to be outdoors, hiking, traveling, taking rides on the ranger, target shooting, skeet shooting, sky diving, wake boarding, and the list goes on.
Q: Where is your favorite place to vacation?
Ashley: I tend to travel to Florida multiple times a year to visit my brother and Chad’s parents, but I love traveling just about anywhere and have been fortunate enough to travel to numerous places throughout the US and Europe. I have yet to have one favorite place! My dream vacation I think would be Fiji.
Q: If you purchased one Rotary Lift product what would it be? Why?
Ashley: SPOA10-SW (Two post Shockwave™) because it follows my life…it’s fast! And with the amount of cars, trucks, toys my boyfriend has it would be the most logical lift. Or in his case a great gift!
