Meet the ​supervisor

Director of Operations Ashley Davis

I love historic structures and have a Master's in Historic Preservation. Honesty and hard work are things I value highly but I strongly believe in balance and living your life. Boundaries are important to have with work so that you can show up better when you're there. I believe in setting communication expectations upfront and giving clear direction on projects or tasks to prevent confusion or stress. I think there are many ways to complete tasks and while I am happy to provide guidance when requested, I do not care for micromanagement. Making mistakes is essential to growth and as long as no one gets hurt, they are okay. Above all, this person should be welcoming to everyone from all walks of life, cultures, and belief systems as I do not tolerate hate in any form. This should be a fun position in a safe space for the candidate to learn and grow in a creative manner.
