Cape Fear CREW welcomes Member Ashley Nicole!
Ashley Nicole joined McKinley Building Corporation as a project manager assistant in May of 2019. She entered the construction industry in 2005 as a secretary and worked her way up to Assistant Project Manager. She is very proud of the fact that despite not having a college degree, she has gained all of her knowledge and abilities and successes from working in various industries of construction including commercial, federal, state and private construction. She is also a North Carolina Notary. Ashley looks to connect with those interested in property development and interior renovations.
Her role helping customers subcontract purchase orders, change orders, invoices, submittals and closeouts makes her a valued member of the McKinley team. She feels that the business stays true to what Ken, the owner, values most, “Building on a strong foundation.” She believes firmly in the value of starting strong relationships with clients from the beginning to end, giving back to the community, and supporting local businesses’ dreams. This is clearly demonstrated outside of work with her dedication to the CREW and IMPACT Group. She is also a part of Goodworks, Friends of Felines, Carolina Coastal Community Hurricane Relief Fund, and Adopt an Angel. Since joining CREW she has made some amazing new friends and connections and looks forward to meeting other members.
In her free time Ashley loves spending time with her niece Riley and being a cat mom. She loves all things fall such as camping, bonfires, and the kickoff of the holiday season. Ashley also enjoys going on cruises and just being on the water.
