Say Hello to Ashley!
Our team here at Sassafras Marketing is growing and we’re excited to introduce you to our newest member, Ashley Scherzer. Ashley is our new Operations Manager and though she just joined the team a few weeks ago, she has jumped right in her role of managing the operational side of the business. We’re excited to have her on board and we hope you enjoy getting to learn a little bit about her.
What do you like most about working at Sassafras?
I really enjoy the fun-loving, hard-working culture. Even though I’m the newest member of the team, it hasn’t felt like it because everyone is so friendly, inclusive and ready to help.
Your hometown postcard—what’s on it?
There’s so much to put on it, but if I picked out my favorites, it would have Royals baseball (Kauffman Stadium), Boulevard Brewery, The Roasterie (my favorite coffee brand), the downtown skyline, BBQ and Mexican food.
Who is your hero and why?
My mom. She’s brave, confident, funny, caring, spiritual and kind. I’ve learned a lot from her, though I didn’t know it until after I became a mother. She still gives me the best advice when I need it, or picks me up when I need a boost.
What book are you reading right now?
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry, by Fredrik Backman
Name an interesting thing about yourself that others might not know.
One summer in college, I was a camp counselor and co-gymnastics instructor at an all-girls camp in the Berkshires (Hinsdale, MA).
What is your favorite website or app?
I can’t name just one – Amazon.com, Joss & Main, and IMDb.
Is there a particular project or work product you are most proud of?
I’m too new to pinpoint just one thing, but I’m working on some exciting projects related to processes and operations.
Describe your ideal Saturday. This would be my agenda (no scheduled kids’ activities):
Coffee with husband before the kids wake up
Cook and eat big breakfast
Outdoor activities with the family (hiking, biking, exploring a new place)
Meet up with friends for dinner
After kids go to bed, card games or sit out on the deck with husband while listening to our favorite music and drinking our favorite beverages
You’re leaving town for a very, very long time…where would you dine for your last meal and what would you eat?
I would probably have to eat at 801 Chophouse. I would order a glass of red wine, a filet mignon, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli and have either crème Brule or apple pie with ice cream for dessert.
