Ashley Nicole joined McKinley’s team as a Project Manager Assistant in 2019. She entered the construction industry in 2005 and has learned everything to date by being hands-on in the field and office. One of her biggest accomplishments is not having a college degree, but gaining all of her knowledge and abilities from working in various industries of construction including Commercial, Federal, State and Private construction.
Her role to help customers subcontract purchase orders, change orders, invoices, submittals and closeouts make 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 local grounds in Wilmington that give back to the community (Goodworks, Friends of Felines and Carolina Coastal Community Hurricane Relief Fund, Adopt An Angel).
In her free time Ashley loves spending time with her niece Riley, she is also a cat mom. She enjoys the beach, pool, boating being on the water and fall time for camp fires and the beginning of the Holiday Season
