Meet the SHE.IS. Event Squad!!
Ashley Johnson: Fort Lily Founder & Chief Experience Designer
I'm a super-doer busybody at heart, so my love of beautiful, over-the-top experiences is no secret to those close to me! I wear most of the hats here at FL but when it comes to building something big, I'm happy to put my trust in the capable hands of women whose strengths are my, well, not-so-strengths!
When building teams I believe that experience is subjective; Passion for what you want is all the experience I require: Give the person the tools they need and let them RUN with it. Some of the women on the SHE.IS. team are fresh out of the gate while some are seasoned in role.
I've designed the SHE.IS. experience with the everyday woman in mind. And I'm PROUD to say it would not be possible without the talent power of EACH of our FL teammates. Meet the SHE.IS. team!
Paris Williford: Pop - Up Shop Curator & Event Designer
Paris and I have been friends for a while, and what I value most about this super strong Leo is her tasteful aesthetic, eye for quality and her incessant need to create experiences within the finest of details. She's humble, an entrepreneur, a self-starter who never cracks under pressure, and is a bastion for women and human rights! That's why she's the salt to my pepper here at SHE.IS. and really, in everyday life!
Hali Shepard: Executive Assistant; Prop Stylist
Don't let anyone tell you that being an assistant isn't noble work! True stewardship means the extra mile is the only mile you travel and at FL we believe there's true honor in service! Hali is a superstar assistant who's never afraid to get her hands dirty. A super organized team player; the one who shows up early and leaves last! Hali joins the SHE.IS. team to perform in a variety of roles but above all else, she's putting her hands in all the construction projects and DOMINATING.
Dawn Johnson: Event Design Assistant
Dawn inspired so many with her open and honest journey on the road to kicking breast cancer in the tail this year! Even during her recovering she kept her hands at work for FL and we love her for it. Dawn joins SHE.IS. with years of event planning, party and design experience. From cakes to florals, you name it, she DOES it. She's always the first on board no matter the idea, and faith is always a good attribute to have on any team.
Bobbie James: Designer, Stylist and Runway Showrunner
When I first met Bobbie I asked her what she wanted to do in life, and she relayed, with so much understated passion, her desire to make her mark in the design industry. When I was crunched for time backstage at another FL event, Bobbie stepped up without hesitation. Her quick attention and clean, organized work made her a NO BRAINER for her involvement in SHE.IS. But this time, we're giving this budding entrepreneur full control over her passion. I mean guys, you should have seen her immense JOY over the Season 2 pieces. Those are the kinds of reactions we LIVE for.
Shannon Jessup: Pop-up Retail Manager and Hostess
SHE.IS. needed a fierce and friendly spirit to run our store and host our runway showcase and we could think of no other than Shannon! Shannon brings a wealth of finance and retail management experience to the SHE.IS. team and exercises entrepreneurial finess like no other person I know. A self-made super-woman, Shannon embodies the drive and passion we'd like for each everyday woman we touch to exude.
Amber Johnson: Guest Services Specialist
An event is nothing at all without its guests and Amber will be the first fresh face you see before entering the space. Amber is warm, organized, helpful and an all-around pleasant spirit. It's my pleasure to place all of you in the very capable hands of this supermom of three--that's just how much we trust her!
Every woman on my team is a SHE with many titles, roles, passions and skill sets that are essential to who they are, and this event. I hope to see you at there!! And if you haven't gotten your ticket yet, see below!
