NEXT is growing the number of companies we support, the number of programs to support you, and now we’ve added a new position to manage the growth.
Welcome Christy Ashkettle in her new role as the NEXT Operations Manager. We are enjoying getting to know and work with Christy. And thought you would too by checking out the following questions and answers.
Q: Where did you grow up and why aren’t you there now?
I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and I’m not there now, because I can’t find my passport. JK! I moved to the US to go on an adventure and be a part of a different culture. I’m in love with South Carolina!
Q: Any volunteer activities you’re crazy about?
I am an animal lover and will always support shelters as well as charities that assist the homeless. Helping those that can’t help themselves brings me a lot of joy and fulfillment.
Q: Any awards or medals, or even medallions? Personal okay, too.
A long long time ago when I was in high school, I was awarded a silver medal by the Mayor for my achievements at the National Karate Championships. However I received no date offers for the prom that year and at the time couldn’t understand why…
Q: Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?
Napping, walking the dog, Redditing or trying new restaurants. Sundays are Brunch days!
