New Year, New Perspectives – Ashly Keene

It’s a new year, folks, and we’ve got some new faces at L&P! During the past few weeks, we’ve been introducing you to several of our recent hires and their thoughts on the year ahead.

Meet Ashly Keene, Benefit Analyst in Human Resources at L&P.


What brought you to Leggett?
I have many friends and family who work here — including my husband! I’ve heard nothing but good things about the company. When a position opened up in my field, I knew I had to jump on the opportunity. Leggett is such a great company in our community and I knew I wanted to be a part of it.

What’s something surprising about you?
I have two daughters: Keegan is 7 years old and Claire is 2 years old. My oldest has always wanted to be a cheerleader; however, her elementary school has not had cheerleading as an option in a few years. Since I was a cheerleader throughout my entire school career and always wanted to be a coach, I took on the role as Youth Cheerleading Director. I also took on the role as PTO President at her elementary school last year. Both have been great experiences for me!

What’s your biggest goal for 2018?
As an employee, my biggest goal is to be trained as fast as possible. A coworker is going on maternity leave in a few months and I would like to be prepared to take on as much as I can while she’s on leave! My personal goal for 2018 is to work on organization – both as it relates to my community volunteering and being a wife and mother.
