Ashley VanAlstyne

Support Staff
Title: Permit Technician
Phone: 518-434-5995


Ashley has worked in customer service for most of her adult life. "I'm a people person so it just came naturally," says Ashley, a Permit Tech. She went to college at Johnson and Wales, where she studied business management. She likes the people in the Department and the work. "The job is a challenge, but in a rewarding way," she says. "Customers help me grow as a person. Sometimes they teach me what they know, sometimes it's patience, and sometimes I experience what it's like to walk in somebody else's shoes."

Ashley has always loved to learn-she's a voracious reader and used to pick up a word a day when she was younger. "Since I've been here, I've learned something new every day," she says. In her spare time Ashley reviews newly released mysteries and romance novels.
