Ashley Pate began working at Brownell in 2014 as a Travel Coordinator on Meg North’s team. Having been to Walt Disney Resort many times (she’s visited every month of the year except July!), she holds a special place in her heart for planning trips there. Ashley also loves planning family getaways and sharing in the excitement of an upcoming adventure. She listens carefully to find a destination that has something for each family member and looks forward to hearing about the experience when her clients return. Ashley has always had a love for travel. She has been to Australia and New Zealand where she marked diving in the Great Barrier Reef off her bucket list.
Ashley graduated from Mississippi State University with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast meteorology and worked for over ten years as a meteorologist in Alabama. While studying weather patterns around the world, she was always thinking and dreaming of someday visiting those places. That dreaming led Ashley to eventually switch careers and join the Brownell family. Working at Brownell has allowed her to continue one of her favorite aspects of her job as a meteorologist: helping people!
