Ashley was born and raised with an innate hustling mentality and drive to succeed. She does not believe in the word “no,” and if she ever encounters it, she finds a way to make things happen. She knows that the best way for us to achieve our goals is to collaborate, work and learn together.

Her favorite Rom Com: Love Jones. I am so crazy about it because I think it paints a realistic representation of what it is like to fall in love for two people that were not quite looking for anything serious.
