Humans of Terakeet: Ashley Timms

Editor’s Note:

The Content Department here at Terakeet is one of our largest here at TK. The ‘Keeters who make up this department are passionate individuals who provide real value to our customers and our organization every day of the week. Content Manager Ashley Timms is one such dedicated ‘Keeter, and we sat down with her this week (virtually) to talk about Led Zeppelin, breathing exercises, and strategic dog scratches!

Q1: How did you come to work at Terakeet? What is your favorite part about working here?

I found my way to Terakeet just like any good millennial: a LinkedIn job posting! My favorite part of working here is, hands-down, the people. They make my day every day!

Ashley Timms takes some amazing dog photography.

Q2: Tell us a little more about you outside of work! What’s one thing most people wouldn’t know about you? 

Beyond the 9 to 5, I’m a dog photographer! I love studying dog behavior and photographing dogs lets me freeze those moments of dog happiness in time.

Q3: What’s your current obsession? 

Paddle boarding – the same obsession I get every summer!

Q4: Choose a movie title for the story of your life.

“Finding The Silver Lining.”

Ashley Timms enjoys a good paddle on a beautiful day.

Q5: What’s the strangest/coolest thing that’s ever happened to you?

When I was about 8 years old, my brother and I won a “lifetime supply” of Fruit Roll-Ups. They delivered about eight to ten cases to our house. Obviously, we had way too many and handed them out as parting gifts to everyone who visited our home.

Q6: What would your desert island band/artist be, and why?

Led Zeppelin, hands down. I could listen to anything and everything by them on repeat and never get bored. Every time I hear their music, it strikes me in a nuanced way.

Ashley and Oskar enjoy a delightful walk (and each other’s company)!

Q7: What is one thing you’ve tried recently that has helped you stay calm and focused?

Breathing exercises and planned dog scratches! I make time to pet my dog, Oskar, between meetings. Unplugging for a couple of minutes to hang with him really helps me mentally reset before diving back into productivity mode.
