The CalCom family is always looking to grow and in 2020 we were happy to have Ashley join to team as an intern. Although it has only been a handful of months, Ashley has proven to be an integral member of the Torrance Branch and will be joining our family full-time. We are excited to see her share her energetic smile (even behind a facemask) with our Members and are looking forward to her journey with us. Here are some fun facts about her:

What do you love most about CalCom? What I love most about CalCom is how much they truly care about their Members and Employees. They put their all into making sure the needs of their Members and Employees are met.

What is your favorite pastime?
Some of my favorite past-times are going hiking or visiting the beach.  Before the pandemic, I enjoyed going to the movies or to music concerts.

Do you have a mentor? If so, who is it and why?
My mentor would have to be my father. He is the most hardworking and humble man I know. He started his own business and came here with nothing and still persevered. He always pushes me and teaches me morals that have always stuck with me. 

If you could have any superhero power, what would it be?

If I could have any superpower it would be to have super speed. I think it would be really cool to help with getting places on time or finishing tasks quickly.

What is your favorite TV show or movie or novel? 
One of my favorite novels is The Giver by Lois Lowry. This book is about a dystopian world that teaches us it is better to suffer and feel emotion rather than not feel at all in order to also experience joy and love.

What is your favorite music genre? 
I enjoy listening to almost every music genre, but my top three genres are  R&B, Reggae, and Spanish music. I think music can make a huge impact on a person so I try to listen to as much as I can.

What is your favorite place you have traveled to? 
My favorite place I have been to would have to be Mexico. Going to the place where my family was born and grew up was an amazing experience. It is also a gorgeous place to visit and explore.
