CREW Pittsburgh would like to welcome Ashley Langford as a new member! Learn more about what inspires her in this Q&A:
What role do you play in the commercial real estate industry?
I am a structural engineer. I have a decade of experience, with most of that in nuclear and heavy industrial, but in the past few years I have been focusing on the commercial and multifamily sectors working with new buildings, renovations, and additions.
How did you get started in your current position?
I was in Baltimore for four years and thoroughly enjoyed my time there, but the pandemic made me realize how hard it was to be so far from my family members who are in Pittsburgh. I decided that I needed to get back home and was fortunate to find a great position with Providence.
What are your interests and/or hobbies outside of work?
I love to take my dog to the dog park (she loves it too!). It is a great way to get out, see different areas of the city, and tire her out! I also enjoy crafting. I have taken up diamond painting since
the pandemic started, and most of the bookcases in my office are full of crafting supplies.Nothing beats listening to an audiobook while crafting!
Do you have any pets? What kind(s) and what are their name(s)?
I have one dog, Blue (Blueberry Marie when she’s being sassy). She’s a cockapoo who loves to meet new people and new dogs.
Anything else you want us to know about you?
My favorite part of structural engineering is creative problem solving. I enjoy leaning on my unique experience to attack a problem from a slightly different approach than most.
