Ashley Shade

What would your work nickname be?

The Troubleshooter – I enjoy coming up with ways to solve problems and improve upon what we already do so well.

Where were you born and raised? If not Colorado, what brought you here?

I am a TRUE native and was born and raised in Thornton, Colorado. I even went to college here and have my Hospitality Administration & Management degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver.

When did you join Rocky Mountain Catering & Events, and in what position did you start?

I joined RMC in December of 2023 as an Event Designer. I came to RMC with an extensive management background in the hospitality industry with years of experience facilitating all types of events with a focus on weddings!

What is the favorite part of your job?

My favorite part about this job is taking a blank space and creating someone’s favorite day! This allows me to be creative while helping clients through the logistics of their vision. It is amazing to see people’s culture, personality, interests and more come through in the small details they incorporate into their special events.

What inspires you?

My family inspires me to be a better version of myself every day. They are my support system and my biggest cheerleaders. They have taught me to work hard and love life to the fullest.

When not at work, what are you doing?

If I am not at work, you can usually find me outside somewhere. My kids are involved in many different sports, and I love watching them play. I am personally on a Women’s fastpitch league as the team’s catcher and I love snowboarding, hiking, working out, riding my motorcycle and am always open to trying new things.

What is your favorite food? RMC Food?

To me, ice cream is a food group! And is hands down my favorite…there are so many different flavors and toppings, you can't go wrong! RMC Food? Well, the daily family meal our Chef’s prepare is amazing! Check back in with me in a couple of months and I know I will have some favorites to share!
