Hi, I'm Ashley.

Here's a little about me.

I grew up in Berryville, VA where the biggest event of the year was the county fair. After spending my childhood on a farm, I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2010. Post graduation, I decided to pursue an ambitious adventure to make ends meet as a snowboard instructor in Colorado. Leaving the ski bum lifestyle behind, I relocated to Richmond where I worked in the fast-paced world of IT Staffing. The mix of creativity and business drew me to the VCU Brandcenter, and it was the best decision I've ever made. 

I'm fearlessly inquisitive which has me constantly curious about people's lives and why they do the things they do. (My friends have accused me of being creepily observant.) I'm passionate about discovering a brand's higher purpose to connect with people on a deeper level, and I aspire to make work that impacts brands and culture. 

 When I'm not working you can find me making music videos, cuddling my Pomeranians, making matcha lattes, and dreaming of my next meal.
