In June of 2020, we welcomed Ashley Quick as a new Account Executive to the G&S Nursery team! Ashley is now serving the Charleston, South Carolina area market and we are excited about the energetic spirit she brings with her. Originally, she is from Illinois but came to Marianna, Florida to accept a full softball scholarship to Chipola College. She played every sport she could growing up, and even though basketball was her favorite sport, she had no desire to spend her days inside a gym. Her junior year, she transferred to East Carolina University to play softball on another full ride scholarship and graduated with a BSBA Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing.
After college, Ashley entered the realm of sales working for Beasley Broadcast Group in Greenville, North Carolina. She continued to work in sales and management until one day she decided to pick up and move to Key West, Florida where she accepted a job offer with an accounting firm. She quickly discovered sitting behind a desk was not for her and landed a position back in sales with Sysco Foods. After nearly four years in their wholesale industry, she transferred with Sysco to the Charleston area for a total of six years with the company. When coming to G&S Nursery, Ashley already knew she belonged in sales because she loved finding solutions for her clientele and the freedom such a position affords.
Ashley is also passionate about the outdoors and plant life, “No matter what has gone on, nature has always been my go-to when I needed to get centered, silence the noise and find gratitude. Timing is everything in life. Even though I am not a very patient person, I am an example that when one door closes, another one opens.”
In her free time, Ashley loves exploring the world, catching (not fishing), hiking, fine dining, and spending time in the sun with her two dogs, Harley and Toby. We are thrilled to have such an enthusiastic person join our team here at G&S!
