Welcome to the Team: Ashley + Andrea

We are thrilled to welcome?two talented and passionate new team members to the growing MPMG family. Get to know a little about our new Communications Coordinators, Ashley Best and Andrea Fraser-Winsby.

ashley_blogMuse: Travelling inspires me. Every time I travel somewhere new I feel inspired by the different cultures, landscapes, and experiences.
Mission: I am excited to work with the variety of incredibly talented clients that MPMG has?and?play my?part in helping them?achieve their goals.
MO: I recently graduated from University and am still trying to figure out what my professional specialties are. At this time, I would consider my strengths?to be creating compelling stories to help clients stand out from the crowd, assisting managers and account leads with daily tasks, and providing organized and accurate work.
Mantra:?Be present in all things and thankful for all things”- Maya Angelou
Must-Haves: I need my phone to get me through the day. It has my schedule in it and it’s how I stay connected to the world, as well as my friends and family. I also couldn’t live without having at least a few minutes of relaxation everyday. I need that time to recharge and reconnect with what makes me happy.
Music: I love all genres of music, but my favourite would probably be alternative (although I do love a catchy pop song once in a while).? My favourite song is “Something” by The Beatles, who also happen to be my favourite band of all time.
Munchies: Tortilla chips with Salsa.
Mornings: I love the smell of the air in the morning, so I wish I was a morning person, but I’m a night owl and not the best with waking up early.?

andrea-blogMuse:?My 2-year-old daughter!?She’s the funniest person I know. I’m always trying to impress her.
Mission:?I struggled in school, but in the arts community I found something I was good at, so I had an oasis where I could grow and thrive while surrounded by some of the most loving and accepting people in the world. As a result, I’ve always been passionate about making sure everyone knows that the arts matter. For everyone.
MO:?Not to be too on-the-nose, but I take pride in the way that I communicate. Being a good writer, storyteller and listener takes practice, and I try to get better every day.
Mantra:?Work hard and be nice to people.
Must-Haves:?Coffee. Duh. Also essential are fresh air, a good laugh, and hugs from my muse (see above).
Music:?I try to explore lots of different genres, but my default is old Soul and R&B. Anything I can rollerskate to, really.
Munchies:?Popcorn with butter & Frank’s Red Hot sauce, and Whole Foods’ vegan chocolate mousse.
Mornings: We’re not friends.?
