After almost decade of having just one Ashley in town (our esteemed Vice President Ashley Davidson, of course), we now have a second Ashley on the Fish team! One Ashley was fantastic, but two? Unstoppable. Ashley Bennett joined our team several months ago as an Account Coordinator, and in that short period of time she’s already proved that her media skills are top-notch, delivering countless media opportunities on accounts from Blaze Pizza to Authority Brands and more. What we do know about Ashley: she’s on her way to being a true PR Rockstar. What we don’t know: does she prefer her tacos hard or soft? Luckily for us, Ashley took a few moments out of her busy day to answer our burning questions. Keep reading to get to know our new Fishie more!
Work you and personal you likely differ slightly. So how would your friends describe you?
My friends would describe me as funny, fashionable, loving, loyal, creative, and always happy!
And how would Lorne describe you?
No idea but I hope its good. Maybe eager to learn and full of potential.
Bookworm or TV addict?
I mean…did I read all the twilight books in a week when I was in 6th grade? Absolutely, but reality TV has my heart.
What’s your funniest Fish memory?
When Troop ran into the conference room door at full speed… twice.
If you were Lorne for a day, what would you do?
Give everyone the day off.
Early bird or night owl?
Both. I have serious FOMO and actually hate to sleep. I love being able to wake up early and take advantage of a full day, but I also love staying out all night.
What are you currently binge watching on Netflix?
Not on Netflix, but I just started watching RHONJ, and It’s now my favorite reality show!
Tacos – hard shell or soft shell?
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Honestly, nothing. It took me a while, but I’ve learned to be confident in myself, and I’m super proud of the person I am today.
If it were up to you, what would your song selection be for conference line hold music?
Kiss Me Thru The Phone by the infamous Soulja Boy.
Bloody Mary or Mimosa? And you can’t say both, although I’d absolutely respect it.
Margaritas, but mimosa if I really have to choose… but really margaritas.
You can bring anyone as a date to a dinner party, dead or alive, who’s your plus one?
Tupac so we can find out what really happened.
We know you can’t sing, but what’s your go-to karaoke song?
Well, I actually studied vocal performance for 7 years at the palm beach art schools (both middle and high school), but my go-to karaoke song is Potential Breakup Song by Aly & AJ.
What’s your party trick?
I can whistle extremely loud.
Pick your poison – straight shot or mixed cocktail?
Amy Poehler or Amy Schumer?
Amy Poehler for sure.
If you could spend a year living anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Mexico! Besides the endless amounts of tacos and margaritas, Mexico is absolutely beautiful, and the people are amazing!
When was the last time you told a lie? And if you say you don’t lie, then your answer should be “right this second.
Anytime I go out and say I’m only having one drink.
Besides an ice cold cocktail, what motivates you?
Myself. I know what I’m capable of and that I can do amazing things, so I’m constantly pushing myself to be better and better every day.
If your name were an acronym, what would it stand for?
