Get to know what drives her through ‘5 questions with Ashley Long:’

1. Why do you have a passion for this work?

I am passionate about Human Resources because it provides an opportunity to positively impact workplace culture and foster employee growth where they can thrive professionally.

2. What is your most treasured possession?

My children. Materialistic and monetary items can come and go, but my children will forever be the most treasured things in my life.

3. What would you most like to see happen in your state to better serve people with disabilities?

Improving accessibility infrastructure across New Mexico and ensuring that those with disabilities have equal access and opportunities to public spaces, facilities, education, and employment.

4. Who are your heroes in life and why?

My family and friends collectively are my heroes. Every person I have kept close in my life has contributed to my growth and success in one way or another. Some were there to keep my head up when life was hard, and others where there to support me during times of growth. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for my family and friends.

5. What do you consider your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement is being able to carry a baby to term for my sister. She wanted nothing more in life than to be a mother but did not have the ability to do that naturally. Giving her the gift of a family was hands down my greatest achievement in life.
