Kathy Ashmore comes to us after accepting an offer of early retirement from SWBT > SBC > AT&T with 28 years of service. Since leaving AT&T, she has consulted for many companies and executives to help them develop future thinking strategies and business environments, worked as an adjunct professor at Dallas Baptist University teaching in the MBA program and recently accepted the full time position with our firm as our National VP of Sales.
She has extensive experience in business, management and technology. Therefore, she knows where the real rubber meets the road and how to help you learn to navigate the real business world, the pitfalls and the politics of business and emerge with your integrity intact. “I love business strategy and am successful in leading teams to become highly productive, award winning groups and individuals while having a great time along the way.”
On the personal side, she is married with 5 grown daughters, 8 grandchildren (“yes, we got some boys in the mix there!”) and two newly rescued kitties named Ginger and Willow. She a member of First Baptist Church Richardson where she is in the Celebration Choir, is the Director of her Sunday School class (“we are supposed to call them Adult Bible Fellowship classes now!”), served on the Site Planning Committee and now serves on the Building Committee for their exciting new building expansion program.
Beyond being an adjunct business professor, full time employee, active church member, wife, mother and grandmother, she is an avid scrapbooker and card maker. Although her husband says her real hobby is collecting scrapbooking stuff, in her words, “I love to create family keepsakes that commemorate all our life journeys and thoughts. Handmade cards are simply an extension of scrapbooking. If you care to send only the very best, send something you created with your hands. People save them forever.”
Lastly, she loves people and loves helping people learn. “I understand what it is like to work full time, manage a family and get your degree at the same time. As such, I want to see people succeed in school and business. Getting your degree is a necessary and vital part of a successful career. I love being a part of helping people achieve that goal!”
Creative and technical … a rare combination. “Let me help you put our advanced technologies to work in your business” she says. “That lets you do what you do best, while we guard the assets. We’ll both sleep better at night!”
