Ashley’s 10+

8 years ago  •  By  •  0 Comments

As you can probably guess, our quirky team of designers, writers, and organizers would naturally have an equally (or slightly more)-quirky leader. That guess would be spot on. So, here’s a little glimpse into the ever-so-slightly-slanted genius of Ashley Jankowski (you’ll never be the same).

  1. Apparently I was an entrepreneur at an early age. My Dad tells a story about me selling prettily packaged mistletoe at Wal-Mart when I was 10 or 12.
  2. I LOVE to read (mostly silly paranormal romance novels {blush}). Some say my speed reading is slightly creepy. I’ve read 150 books in a little over a year.
  3. My sons name is Opie. Yup. That’s right. Well… His real real name is Oliver Paul, but we call him Opie. I get 1 of 2 reactions upon introduction: 1. “That is so cute. I love it!” OR 2. “Is that his REAL name?”. He’s a funny little dude that likes to make faces at us. He also has an imaginary friend from California named Jack.
  4. I rarely wear make-up on my face or product in my hair. And I HATE that I had enough gray at 30 to have to start coloring my hair.
  5. Every night I fall asleep with a cat on my head, literally, purring in my ear. She also creeps onto my keyboard while I work.
  6. I stayed in college for 8 years. I can design a house, take your photograph and build a brand. I don’t ever want to go back to school unless it’s to teach others about my real world experiences.
  7. There are usually 6-12 empty Diet Mt. Dew cans on my desk on any given day. I hate coffee – leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
  8. My husband is a really smart, witty, funny, creative inventor/engineer who knows something about EVERYTHING and can do pretty much ANYTHING. I keep him around because he helps me a lot and because I love him dearly.
  9. 6 Speeds. 8 Cylinders. Nuff said.
  10. I am SO not a morning person. You are a lucky person if I’ve chatted with you before 9am and you lived to tell the tale.
  11. I have a strange affinity for repetitious songs. Drives my husband insane.
  12. I get my best design ideas in the shower. Excuse me while I go brainstorm a little without my clothes. Ha!
