Happy Thursday! We couldn't wait a minute longer to share that NEAT is opening its doors in Washington DC. For those of you that have been NEAT fans for a while now, you know that we were in DC a couple years back. Ever since we closed, we have been interviewing and looking for a great fit. We are self proclaimed perfectionists so the search took time but we are so proud of our newest NEAT girl and couldn't be happier that DC is ready to live the NEAT life!
Read our interview below to find out more about our newest gem, Ashley.
NM:: Hi Ashley! First of all, great name (wink, wink)!
AH:: Thanks! I figured I would be going by Ashley H with this crowd 🙂
NM:: Ha ha, true! Tell us more about you – where are you from, how long have you lived in DC, etc etc?
AH:: My name is Ashley Hatcher and I am originally from Houston, Texas. I moved to DC in 2011 and met my husband, Chris after meeting him at a wedding in 2008. We have been married for two years next week, time flies!
NM:: Congrats! So you've been in DC for a while now. Tell us why you are the perfect fit for the NEAT DC role.
NM:: DC is lucky to have you! Now let's talk more about organizing. What is your all time favorite product?
AH:: I LOVE the Iron Toy Barrel from The Container Store. This product is perfect for storing stuffed animals and toys, and I even added a liner to the bottom and placed it in my hubby's office to store old building plans he no longer needs. Its a sexy design, great price, and adds a bit of "modern-ness" to any room!
NM:: How about sharing what your favorite blogs to follow are?
AH:: So tough! Honestly, there are two – Apartment Therapy & Who What Wear. I count on Apartment Therapy to give me those "oh so smart" hacks for creatively transforming your space and Who What Wear is my go to expert for all things fashion.
NM:: Ha ha! Three is great! So tell us about who you find to be the most influential woman?
AH:: Beyonce. She's a hard worker, crazy talented, and I'm constantly taking #girlboss notes from her. She's never afraid to push boundries, has managed to stay humble through all of her stardom, and it doesn't hurt that she's also from Houston!
We couldn't agree more, Ashley. A NEAT space definitely adds to a person's life. We can't wait for you to transform the lives of many in DC!
