We are pleased to welcome Ashley Dowling, Project Coordinator, and Mario Noriega, Construction Superintendent to the Merlin team. Ashley and Mario bring a wealth of experience to their respective positions and to the Merlin Custom Home Builders team as a whole.

“We are happy to welcome both Mario and Ashley to Merlin,” said Erica Morrison, Partner and Chief Operating Officer. “Each of these professionals brings a broad knowledge base and years of relevant experience to Merlin, making both of them valuable additions to our growing team.”

Ashley Dowling

As Project Coordinator, Ashley supports the project management team in coordinating project tasks and identifying resources that contribute to the success of the project. She works closely with our clients and construction superintendents, reviewing proposals, issuing contracts and change orders, assisting with submittal packages, sending weekly client updates, and issuing weekly invoices to clients.

Ashley built her skills in the commercial construction industry, working in and around Las Vegas for the past 8 years. A native of Northern California, she moved to the local area to pursue her career. In her free time, Ashley enjoys attending live music and sporting events and spending quality time with her family and friends.

Mario Noriega

As Construction Superintendent, Mario coordinates all site activities and construction personnel in order to ensure that our luxury custom home projects are completed on time and according to plan. He is responsible for safety, scheduling, financials, and personnel—ensuring that our construction teams are adhering to regulations and protocols in order to guarantee that our quality and safety standards are met, and that our projects progress as scheduled.

Mario’s interest in architecture and construction began in high school when he was awarded a scholarship for best residential home design by the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association (SNHBA). Later, he worked for several local architects in the Las Vegas valley before embarking on a successful career in Public Safety. When he’s not working, Mario enjoys overland exploring to remote locations in the desert southwest, searching for Native American petroglyphs to photograph.

Please join us in welcoming Ashley and Mario to the Merlin team!
