Ashley and her husband, Aaron, have been married over 15 years and they have three beautiful little girls together: Lily, Maddie, and Eva
Their daughters are their world and they enjoy watching them in softball, cheerleading, and soccer. Ashley is celebrating her 25th year here at Tebbs! She was a little 13 year old girl when she walked here, sat on the ramp, and asked Robin if she could please have a job. It was one of the best decisions Robin has ever made giving that sweet little 13 year old a job because Tebbs wouldn’t be the business it is today without Ashley.She quickly became like a third daughter to John & Robin, jokingly calling her the adopted daughter. There isn’t a job at Tebbs that Ashley hasn’t jumped to and eagerly wanted to learn the best way to do it. She is always the first to volunteer to help and refuses to leave until the job is done. Although Ashley excels in everything we do here, her compassion and customer service is beyond measure. She is the best with people and all our customers naturally just love her.

In 2019, Ashley corralled her husband, Aaron, into the business she has grown to love. It takes a special couple to not only live together but also work together (just ask John & Robin) but we consider ourselves SO LUCKY that this couple chose to work here! He’s proved his reliability, work ethic, and knowledge to us time and time again. Aaron has many roles that he has taken on in the last few years. Some of which include: hauling corn in the winter months, working ground for planting season, planting in the greenhouse, general maintenance of everything and anything, freezing our sweet corn, and so much more. He's in every place that is needed and there’s not a job he doesn’t smile the whole way through. One of the most notable thing s about Aaron is his happy personality. His positivity creates such a great work experience for everyone involved. It's very rare to find someone who will always come to work with a smile and positive attitude whether he’s shoveling out grain bins or digging weeds.
