OPCD #SHOWUP Spotlight
OPCD is so appreciative of our staff members who go above and beyond to serve New Orleans that we want to share their stories. In this second installment of our #SHOWUP Spotlight series,
meet OPCD Hero Ashley Lucas.
Ashley is currently a telecommunicator for Orleans Parish Communication District and has been working for the agency for more than 5 years.
Ashley began her public safety career in New Orleans to fulfill her innate desire to serve others, especially in such a bustling city where there are few dull moments.
“I love helping people, especially at this capacity. As a telecommunicator at OPCD, I’m able to provide assistance to New Orleans’ citizens and visitors in ways I never would have imagined,” said Ashley.
The rich culture, flavorful food and unique people of New Orleans are just a few reasons why Ashley cherishes the Crescent City and unceasingly devotes her labor and love to its improvement.
When Ashley has a day to relax, she spends time with the people who matter most and thinks of new ways to make her home comfier for all to enjoy.
“I spend my down time with my family doing arts and crafts and creating DIY (Do It Yourself) projects for home décor,” said Ashley.
Although Ashley only needs the simple things to have an easy-going day, her ultimate idea of relaxation is a trip outside of the U.S., preferably on a Pacific island.
“My dream vacation is a trip to Bora Bora. It has blue water, nice resorts and lots of attractions, which really appeal to me,” said Ashley.
Maybe Ashley can get that vacation as a gift for Christmas, which is her favorite holiday!
Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Ashley.
