Employee Spotlight: Ashley Medina
This month, we get to know Ashley Medina, a Premium Plus Technician here at Platte River Networks. Ashley just hit her one year mark here and we are happy to have her on the team!
Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Ashley is only 7 courses away from graduating with her Bachelors in Management Information Systems from the University of Colorado Denver Business School. She has years of working in the hospitality industry, which really helped shape her customer service skills. This makes her the perfect fit for a triage position.
Ashley is very knowledgeable when it comes to coffee, wines, and cheeses. She loves finding new coffee shops to explore and enjoys being a coffee connoisseur. In fact, she is happiest when she is in her home of San Antonio walking her 6-year-old Maltipoo, Zoey, along the San Antonio Riverwalk, and stopping at her favorite cafe spot next to the river for an iced brew coffee.
The oldest of 5 kids, Ashley says there was never a quiet moment in her parent’s home but she wouldn’t have it any other way. The person she admires most is her Abuelita Lucy because she never let any obstacle get in her way of accomplishing her goals. She came to the country not knowing English but was able to build a home and raise 5 ambitious and successful children practically by herself.
If Ashley could be anything or anybody, she would want to be a travel/foodie blogger. She thinks it is awesome that in this day and age you can make a living traveling and then posting about your trip or what you ate. When asked what her favorite motto is, Ashley said “C’est la vie.”
We are thrilled to have Ashley on the Platte River Team!
