HPC Employee Spotlight: Ashley Hensley – Customer Specialist West Coast Territory
We want to shine a light on Ashley Hensley. Ashley grew up in Wilmington OH. She graduated from Laurel Oaks Trade School with a focus on early childhood education. Prior to pivoting her career, she pursued a psychology degree at Sinclair. Her background and experience transitioned well into the customer service field and we are grateful to have her on the HPC Team.
Ashley joined HPC Fire Inspired in August 2017. It was a natural fit. Her upbeat personality energizes our workplace. She goes above and beyond to support her team and our customers. She started with HPC in Customer Service and quickly moved up to Lead Order Entry Clerk. As she continued to work and grow she was promoted to Lead Order Entry Supervisor. Ashley continued to prove herself to be a tremendous asset to our team and it was time to promote her to Customer Specialist. Ashley manages the West Coast Territory and is dedicated to our patrons. Ashely loves her new role as she gets the opportunity to get on a more personal level with customers and dealers. Her attention to detail and strong leadership skills allows her to be a great team member. Ashley is dedicated to continued growth and improvement. She has completed her HPC University Certification, making her an expert on all of HPC offerings. In addition, Ashley continues to actively seek opportunities to expand her knowledge. Most recently she has completed courses for Supervision and Project Management. Ashley is a constant learner and truly exemplifies HPC’s value for continuous improvement.
On a personal note, Ashley’s family means the world to her. She and her husband Jamonn met while working together. They now both have joined HPC’s Team; Ashley serves as a Customer Specialist and Jamonn works in Shipping. Together they have created a beautiful family. They have 4 energetic children starting with their eldest daughter Alanah, their two sons Jayden and Jamonn Jr. and their youngest daughter Jamiah.
Ashley loves cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. One of the ways she shows her love for others is through her cooking. Her favorite recipes to recreate have been passed down from her Grandma. She and Jammon are their children’s biggest supporters. They love cheering their kids on in their extra curricular activities from dance to basketball and football. In their down time, they love taking their family out on the town. Together they love trying new restaurants taking in the Arcade and playing laser tag.
Ashley has grown so much and is a great asset to HPC. We know that she will continue make a great impact on our community and we can’t wait to see what her next accomplishments will be!
