Controller | Director of HR
Beyond financial reporting, Ashley’s analytical expertise includes the review of every completed project shipped from Spika Design & Manufacturing. The final step in a continuous cycle of self-evaluation and improvement, she delves into a project’s numbers looking for opportunities that translate into increased value for Spika’s customers.
The insightful nature of Ashley’s calculations not only applies to customers but to Spika’s employees as well. Her devotion to cultivating an engaging work environment offering competitive benefits contributed to the City of Lewistown recognizing Spika Design & Manufacturing as the Employer of the Year.
A Lewistown native, Ashley obtained her BSBA in Accounting from Montana State University at the nearby Billings campus. She served as a Franchisee Accounting Coordinator for a nationally-celebrated outdoor hospitality company before joining Spika as an Accounting Manager. Her foresight and initiative soon led to the expansion of her duties to her current role as Controller and Director of HR.
A wife and the mother of twin boys and two girls, Ashley enjoys spending time with her family camping or enjoying a bonfire during the summer and crocheting or decorating cakes during the winter.
When she’s not calculating paychecks or analyzing projects, Ashley can be found mothering her two kids, camping, hiking, crocheting, and going on “Sunday Drives.” You know she’s from Montana because she lives within two miles of the hospital where she was born.
