Branch Manager, Tukwila
Prior to joining TERRA in 2017, Ashley had established and successful careers in both retail management and the cosmetic industry.
Her experiences taught her to never say no to opportunities. So, when the opportunity to join TERRA’s Tukwila team as Recruiter became available, she took it, needing a job that offered a better work/life balance and allowed her more time with her husband and new baby.
It was a great move. And Ashley quickly proved herself to be a leader and top-performer.
In 2019, she was promoted to Staffing Manager and was promoted once more, in 2021, to Senior Staffing Manager.
Now, Ashley is Branch Manager of the Tukwila branch, the very branch she began her TERRA journey with, and is mentoring and developing the next generation of TERRA leaders.

Tell us about your first job.
My very first job was working as a janitor for my uncle’s sweeping company. This was a dirty job, cleaning up after diesel mechanics. I learned hard work, perseverance and that nothing comes easy. It was also here that I learned the value of a dollar.
What other professions would you like to try?
I always wanted to be a hair stylist. I never had the opportunity, however, due to eczema on my hands.
If you could possess any super power, what would it be?
The ability to heal.
What do you enjoy most about working in the staffing industry?
I love the challenge, reward and results I am able to help provide to internal and external employees. I love that no day is the same.
