Admitting to a childhood dream of one day being a flight attendant, Ashley now flies high as one of the Cypress Planning Group founding partners. Having earned most of her stripes at Starwood Hotels, Ashley is a hospitality veteran with over 35 years in the industry. A seasoned professional, she brings unending enthusiasm and diligence to her many roles.
Whether it’s customizing an RFP, negotiating a contract, or coordinating site inspection details, Ashley is equal parts cheerleader and coach. When you meet her, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without knowing someone who makes you feel like you can reach the stars while touching the moon. (She hates goodbyes which is why she is always the last one to leave the party.) And because she’s a puzzle whiz, she can see the big picture as well as patiently and diligently find what’s missing.
A New Orleans native, Ashley graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in communications and is an active member of Meeting Professionals International. Client-oriented, family-focused, and a die-hard friend maker, she believes kindness is the most valuable—and economical—way to treat others. “It doesn’t cost a dime to be kind.” So true.
