Meet The Team – Ashley Falsario – WordPress Web Developer, Lover of PHP, and Austin Music Fan.
WebTegrity’s Senior WordPress Developer, Ashley Falsario, specializes in the field of coding, web developing, PHP and MySQL. Having transitioned from the aesthetics industry, after a programming boot camp, Ashley has embraced the intricacies of coding and WordPress, becoming an important member of the WebTegrity team. A lover of chick flicks and Vodka Cranberries, this career mom welcomes us into a few of her favorite things.
- Are you originally from San Antonio?
I am not originally from San Antonio. My father was in the Army all my life growing up so my family and I moved around a lot. We were stationed here at BAMC 11 years ago and my father has since retired.
- When did you know you wanted to work in the tech industry?
Prior to entering the tech industry, I was a licensed aesthetician working at a laser hair removal clinic. I enjoyed my job and the people that I worked with but I knew that I didn’t want to make a career in that particular industry. I wanted a little more of a challenge in my daily life so one day I took a big chance and applied to join a coding boot camp. My life has never been the same and I love it.
- What’s been your favorite project to work on so far with WebTegrity?
My favorite project to work on was Lucy’s Doggy Daycare. It was a fun, bright, colorful site with a lot of movement.
- What hobbies do you have?
Lately, playing Overwatch on my PC and Hearthstone. Know anyone who wants to play?? 🙂
- What is your favorite movie of all time?
Pretty much any chick flick from the early 2000s. I can’t think of one in particular because there are so many.
- Do you have a favorite quote?
“I trusted you, Nicky. I welcomed you into my home. We broke bread together. Grandmama made you a cannoli. And how did you repay my generosity? With a rug, made from the butt of a skunk. A skunk butt rug. You disrespected me. You disrespected my Grandmama, whom I buried in that skunk butt rug.” – Mr. Big
- What’s your favorite happy hour drink?
- What’s your favorite go-to karaoke song?
Any Amy Winehouse Song
- What are you currently watching on Netflix?
Just finished watching Ozark and GLOW. I’m looking for suggestions on the next show to start.
One of my favorite things to do is to challenge Ashley. She joined our team as a sub contractor and learned custom theming on the job. Now – if there’s anything difficult a client needs or we run into on a code problem, Ashley is our first stop. Give her an hour and she’ll figure anything out. If she can’t find an immediate solution she’ll sleep on it and sure enough have an answer in the morning. She’s humble about it, but she’s fantastic for our clients and team! Another thing that I respect about her is her honesty. She’s sometimes brutal with it, but it’s always appropriate.
