Ashley Hodge, CRFP
Panda Restaurant Group
Regional Facilities Manager
What year did you join RFMA? Why did you join RFMA? I joined RFMA November 2016 to prepare for the CRFP exam.
What groups are you involved in with RFMA?
- Females in Facilities
- Young Professionals

- CRFP Group
What do you like most about RFMA and why? I love that RFMA provides a great community, support and a vast facility knowledge base for those within the Restaurant industry.
Which RFMA Resource do you utilize the most and why? I use Peer to Peer calls the most because I get to discuss and exchange knowledge with my peers & vendor business partners.
What’s your hometown? Buffalo NY
What is your proudest accomplishment? Why? Jan 2017—I won 3rd place in the USPA Powerlifting Competition lifting over 670lbs combined doing squat, bench press, and deadlift. Sometimes weightlifting is less about the weight. And more about what you are channeling through the challenge of hundreds of pounds crushing your back. The weights are objective. Will you let them dominate you? Or will you dominate them? Fitness is my therapy. Each of us has more strength than we know and can use it to make an impact in the world and in the lives of others. Why do I give my all? "To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift" - Steve Prefontaine
If you weren’t in the Facilities Industry, what would you be doing? I would manage a health/wellness center
What’s your favorite type of food? A classic PB & J sandwich
What is your favorite book? The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals
What is one of your favorite quotes? “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” - Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Who knows you the best? My mom
