Ashley L. Russo
Operations & Transitions Specialist
Ashley is an Operations & Transitions Specialist for The Independent Grid. She works closely with the advisors affiliated with The Grid by supporting client service and operations needs, as well as helping to recruit advisors to the firm and guiding them in their transition to The Grid.
Ashley joined us in 2021 with a considerable background in banking, and years of experience in management, consumer lending, and financial advice. While working in the banking industry Ashley became interested in finance and investments as she would often refer clients to financial advisors to talk about additional services that could benefit them.
Ashley makes the lives of our advisors a little bit easier by providing them with administrative support and helping them meet their clients' needs. She's whip-smart and has been able to recognize needs of the advisors before they realize their needs themselves.
Ashley's favorite thing about her job is forging strong working relationships with the advisors within the Grid Network. Her ultimate goal is to reach a point in their relationship where she can anticipate their needs and stay one step ahead of the advisors she works with so they can focus on building their business because they know they can trust Ashley to handle everything else.
Ashley is a New York native who currently resides in Mechanicsburg with her Miniature Dachshund Elsa, and her 2 cats Gimli and Guillermo.
Ashley is an avid baker that rivals professional bakers with her skills, being the preferred baker of choice by our team for any events. In her free time Ashley enjoys gardening, and taking weekend road trips.
