Ashley has always had a passion for the restaurant business. She loves the high energy, the opportunity to meet new faces, and the fulfillment of seeing folks have a great time. Born and raised in New Jersey, she moved out West to attend Northern Arizona University. She then ran her own sandwich shop on Pearl Street in Boulder and after a brief stint on the East Coast returned back to sunny CO. She absolutely loves Colorado and—though she will always miss the Jersey Shore—is proud to call it home.
When she’s not throwing a party for her guests at The West End, Ashley loves spending time outdoors and swimming with her two kids, Izzy and Tyler. She also enjoys snowboarding, hiking, dining out, and volunteering at her daughter’s school cafeteria and classroom.
Sharon Read Bar Manager
Sharon knows The West End Tavern like the back of her hand. She rose through the ranks – from bartender to event manager to floor manager – before taking the reins of the Tavern’s rock star booze syllabus. She has a talent for hiring awesome folks, mixing a mean drink, and seeking out exceptional beers for the rotating tap list.
Born and raised in Salinas, CA, Sharon worked on a dude ranch in the Rocky Mountains during college. While there, she got her first taste of the high-energy and excitement of the hospitality industry and has been loving it ever since. When she’s not creating great experiences for her guests, she enjoys grabbing a beer with friends, getting outdoors, camping, and going to concerts.
