Meet Ashley Malmloff, a star on our Housekeeping team.  An Island girl, Ashley’s family was originally from Tofino.  In fact, her mother DeeDee and Aunt Sherry worked at Pacific Sands for years.

When she’s not helping keep our guest suites spotless, you can find her enjoying yoga and the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing with her newly decorated skipper and partner Devon.

And next time you're here, if you see a girl with long brown hair and a big smile fly by in a bright red Chevy, that was Ashley.
