Ashley has been a part of the St. Francis parish since 1988 when she moved here with her family from Florida.  Being only 5 years old when she moved here she has grown up in the St. Francis Community and now she’s excited to raise her son in the same community she grew up in.  What began as a part time job in 2010 working for and with her Community quickly developed into a full time career. Ashley is not only organizing and managing the summer camps of Camp Francis, Exercise and Parent Child Classes throughout the year, but now the Coordinator of Community Programs.  When Ashley is not at work, she is a busy mom to her 13 year old son Jack! She loves to go on fun outings with him.  She enjoys scrapbooking and kayaking in her down time, perhaps while drinking a cold glass of sweet tea or Dr. Pepper!

Some other fun facts… She is one of 4 children and loves to wear flip flops ALL THE TIME!

Melissa Carroll
Community Center Facilities Specialist


Melissa was raised in New Jersey just a few minutes outside New York City by her beloved Grandmother. She grew up living upstairs from her family’s bar and restaurant which was very similar to that of the bar on the television show Cheers, where “everybody knew your name”! After being the first from her immediate family to graduate college, Melissa had the privilege of working at the Center for the Protection of Children in New Jersey where she had an extensive background in Crisis Prevention Intervention training. She and her team helped numerous children find a loving home through the adoption process.  Melissa tries to greet each and everyone who enters the café and Community Center. She enjoys meeting all the parishioners, Clergy and volunteers who stop in and visit or work in the café!  She gets her 4 star community service experience from her years of working at the Front Desk of a very busy Marriott hotel in New Jersey.  When Melissa is not at the café serving coffee and donuts with a smile, she is the devoted President of the Garrett and Emily Fan Club at home. She is a also the CEO of her household along with her loving husband Dan. Being a Mother has been her biggest joy in life.

Some other fun facts… Melissa loves football season and is a huge New Jersey Giants Fan! What? They play there so that is what she chooses to call them and of course being from New Jersey her favorite band is but of course Bon Jovi.
