1. What is your favorite food?
Is it weird that this is always a hard question for me? I don't have a particular food that I love. I can however say my favorite restaurant is Inoko's Express in Athens, GA.
2. What is your ideal vacation?
If money were no object it would be a year spent traveling around the world and seeing EVERYTHING. I would spend extra time in Europe and the Mediterranean area. I love the history that comes out of those parts of the world. I've also always wanted to see all 8 wonders of the world.
If we are talking attainable vacation, I love going to St. Simon's Island off the coast of Georgia. I grew up spending my summers there with family and I love going back. It's the perfect little beach town with great memories attached.
3. If you were trapped on an Island, what three things would you bring with you?
Hmmmm... A water filtration pump, a big knife and my friend Kylie. She wouldn't be a huge help to survive but it would be a lot of fun.
4. What is a unique talent you have?
I don't know if it counts as a unique talent but I have an uncanny memory. I will remember your parents names, your favorite food or a childhood story even if you only mention it once. Sometimes it creeps people out but I swear I'm not obsessive or stalkerish, I just remember weird things.
5. What do you enjoy most about working at the Boys & Girls Club?
The people. I love working with the kids, helping them through difficult times and seeing them grow up. It's incredibly fulfilling knowing you've helped a kid reach their full potential and knowing at least one adult is there telling them they can do great things. I also love the staff I work with. We are a great team and make each other laugh. The people I work with are what helps me get through the hard days.
Ashley, thank you for all that you do!!!
