Lisa Ashby
Future Funeral Director
Who I am

Hi, nice to meet you! I'm Lisa, a second-generation funeral director with a background in business and marketing. I had been thinking about following in my father's footsteps for almost three years when the death of my mother made me realize that funeral service is my calling. I enrolled at Piedmont Technical College in 2015 and will graduate August 2016 with an AAS in Funeral Service.

I have an empathetic and caring personality, and it brings me great joy to be of service to others, especially in their time of need. I am highly creative with an acute attention to detail. I have planned large corporate events along with small get-togethers, and I'm naturally drawn to creating intimate, personalized experiences.

Because of my background, I am technologically advanced and learn new concepts quickly. I am proficient in Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and many other desktop applications, and I can calmly troubleshoot a technical difficulty, even under pressure. I am a very well-rounded candidate that has a lot to offer the right funeral home.
