Ashley Michel - Director of Event Production
Ashley is an amazing artist with a talent for craft and construction there isn't a creative project she can't tackle. She learned to think on her feet backstage setting up for large concerts and theatrical performances and while she isn't one to jump out on stage herself she's a rockstar behind the scenes. Some of our most successful events have her signature on them from hand sewn fabrics to one of a kind custom props, and small special touches like pretty place cards and thoughtful details done from scratch. It also doesn't hurt that she's one of the most down to earth and sweetest human beings we've ever met.
