We are thrilled to welcome Ashley Kennedy to the Vision Net team! She recently started working in our Billings office as an Order and Records Associate.
Ashley grew up on a dairy farm outside of Billings and went to school in Shepherd. She went to college for a year or so after high school but wasn’t sure what she wanted to major in. Years later, she decided on a business degree because it would give her the most options in the job market, so she went back to MSU Billings. Ashley took classes part-time online while working full time and eventually got associate degrees in Business and Human Resources and a bachelor’s in business.
1. What made you choose Vision Net?
I chose Vision Net because I was looking for a change. Vision Net offered an excellent opportunity to work for a company that values their employees, which is demonstrated by the staff’s dedication and years of employment.
2. What are some of the responsibilities you have in your role?
I have only been with the company for a few weeks, so I am still training and learning about the different terminology, acronyms, and responsibilities.

The most exciting aspect has been the opportunity to learn about an industry that I have little to no knowledge about. I love to learn new things, so I think it is a great opportunity.

I don’t really have one favorite food, but there are several family recipes that I could not live without.
