As a native of San Antonio, Ashley's heart was set on attending college at no place other than U.T.S.A. Her eye for design drove her to a degree in Architecture, but she felt like something was missing. Only a month before graduation, she traded in her cap and gown for pursuance of a second degree, this one in Construction Science & Management. It was during a construction career fair that she discovered Nic Abbey Luxury Homes. She started as an intern with the company, six months later she got promoted to Construction Coordinator, and two days after graduation, she eagerly joined the Nic Abbey Team full-time.
Ashley is a key point of contact when it comes to building a Nic Abbey home. She is involved in initial client meetings to get a sense of what the clients want, and works closely with the Nic Abbey architects to ensure all plans are accurate for bidding and construction. Ashley works directly with the clients on selection coordination to ensure the clients are getting exactly what they want, whilst staying in budget and on track. She also manages our online construction information platform to ensure that the clients and vendors have all the information they need for each project.
Ashley works hand-in-hand with the Nic Abbey Team and vendors when it comes to estimating, purchasing, subcontracting and change orders. She also works with the vendors to ensure that the job-sites are running proficiently, and that any changes get communicated and implemented smoothly in the field.
