Meet the Team | Ashley Woodcock
We are excited to introduce you to Ashley Woodcock! Ashley has been working with us since June as our Administration Assistant. Ashley is married to Kyle and they have a beautiful pup, Molly. Ashley has a gift for letting people know they are loved and valued and so is the perfect fit for the LIVEmpowered Team. We asked her a few questions to get to know her a little better...
- What are the top three things we need to know about you?
I am an Enneagram type 4, gratefully married to an extraordinary type 9.
Coffee shops are my favorite places.
I am an advocate for kindness, believing it changes everything.
- Why did you get involved with LIVEmpowered?
My beautiful friend suggested it, thankfully, knowing I would feel so connected to the LIVEmpowered mission. Making people feel loved & valued is my heart’s desire!
- If you had one piece of advice for yourself as a young person, what would it be?
Your value is not in the ones who don’t see you, but in your Creator, who sees you as supremely valuable & will never leave you.
- Who or what inspires you?
I am always inspired by kindness. My husband is extravagantly kind & keeps me inspired to be better & to give more freely!
- What did you want to be when you were a child?
The first thing I remember is wanting to be a mermaid, and then a marine biologist. I wanted to save the manatees! I’ve always loved animals. I still want to save them all!
- What makes you feel loved?
Feeling noticed, seen, understood - genuine care feels like open communication & consistency, coffee dates, vulnerability, quality time.
- Describe your perfect day.
Sleeping in, waking up with my husband in our home in East Nashville, taking our dog with us to Ugly Mugs for coffee & paleo doughnuts at Five Daughters Bakery, then going for a hike/picnic at a Nashville park. Coming home & hosting loved ones for a game night, featuring some sort of super chocolate-y dessert.
- How would you change the world?
Wow. That’s a big question! I would change the way people think of & understand adoption, so that every child would have a loving home.
- City or countryside?
City! Or snowy mountainside. We love both.
- Board games or video games?
- Dress up or dress down?
- Breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast?
- Think before you talk or talk before you think?
DEFINITELY think before talking. Always.
