Before joining SagaCity Media in the spring 2015 Ashley Nelson had a stint as a travel agent (she was her college program’s valedictorian “travel specialist”) and as an accountant working in Seattle and Dutch Harbor, Alaska, for a fishing boat servicing company. (While visiting Dutch Harbor the local news station let Ashley host the local news- and her employer at the time paid her $50 every time she “meowed” on camera.) 

Ashley can often can be found volunteering for Make-A-Wish and Get Hitched, Give Hope or back in her hometown for East Lewis County Relay for Life Logistic Chair, Lewis County Clothing Give-Away, and Lewis County Holiday Toy Give-Away. She also also enjoys cooking, singing in her car, making all the sugar packets at restaurants face the same way, and hardcore snacking.
