Ashley Tennison YP Member Spotlight - Oct
Name: Ashley Tennison
Where do you work? Centennial Title, LLC
What’s your job title/what do you do? Funding Closing Coordinator; I am your favorite person when you are buying or selling a house. I get to balance the file; coordinate with the lender to help you fund your loan, or if you are a seller, I get to deliver the good news that your proceeds check is ready. Although there are many other aspects of my job this is my favorite part.
Where are you from? Cross Plains, Texas
If you’re not from Abilene, how long have you lived in the area and what brought you here? I moved to Abilene in 2003 and attended McMurry University. I worked for Lytle Land and Cattle which through the patrons of the restaurant opened the door to my love of Real Estate. I worked for Coldwell Banker Panian and Mash until 2008 and then got a job with Centennial Title.
What is your favorite thing about living in the Big Country? I love the small town feel of Abilene. I can walk into any business or restaurant and they know me by name.
What do you do in your free time? If I am not working you can find me at the Gym with my workout buddies. I love to work out and push my body to the limit to see what I am capable, whether it is through CrossFit or weightlifting. What does being an Abilene Young Professional mean to you? Being a member of AYP brings a vast opportunity to network with people around the same age as myself. During the Covid-19 crisis it was helpful to communicate with other small businesses to see what methods they were using to keep Abilene safe and adopting some of the same practices.
What’s your favorite restaurant in Abilene? I LOVE to eat so any restaurant in Abilene is delicious. If I had to choose a favorite it would be a tie between Bo Thai, The Shed, or Vagabond Pizza.
Share a fun fact about yourself other AYP Members might not know! I have two of the most adorable corgis you will ever meet in your life. Chloe and Riley. You can find us most evenings going for walks in our neighborhood.
