We are excited to introduce Ashley McEnulty, who recently joined our team as our new Regional Sales Manager. Welcome, Ashley!
What were you doing before you came to Sterilex?
I have a background in microbiology so I’ve put that to use for the last 13 years in food safety and quality assurance. The last 6 years I was in a QA Manager role for a produce company and before that, I spent time in berries, tree nuts, fluid milk and juice.
Now that you’re in the field, what territory will you be covering?
I will be covering the western states from Colorado on, as well as parts of Canada and Alaska.
What is the most surprising or interesting thing you’ve learned so far?
I would have to say the products themselves. I’ll be honest, I had only recently heard of Sterilex products right before I applied for the position, and coming from a micro and food safety background they are pretty incredible products to have in your arsenal. Especially with all of the new FSMA regulations and fears of contaminated food, I think the PerQuat technology is pretty incredible.
What inspires you?
I have always been inspired by people who have an amazing ability to connect with anyone they come in contact with. Whether that be people at an upper management level in a corporate setting, or a new employee on the floor with hardly any knowledge of what’s going on. I’ve met certain people in this industry that just have a knack for that, and not only does it take them far but it also gives everyone they meet a sense of comfort and feeling of acknowledgment.
If you have an hour of free time, what do you enjoy doing?
Well that depends, if I’m free from work, I love doing activities with my husband and my two boys, ages 4 and 15 months. Anything outside or animal-related and everyone is happy. Everyone in the family now has a new bike, except me (which is coming soon), so as soon as I get that we will be taking lots of family bike rides! If I have some just me time you’ll probably catch me watching an NFL game or working out a bit. With traveling a lot for this position, and having two young boys, I don’t usually get too much time to myself but I try to stay in shape and watch football when I can.
