Born and raised in Kentucky, Ashley dreamed of a life her small hometown could not offer. She chose to expand her worldview by attending Washington, D.C.'s Howard University, where she studied Public Relations and English. After graduating, she ascended from intern to Senior Public Relations Manager at a boutique PR, marketing and events agency.

During her time with the company, she handled public relations for a variety of businesses including the Howard Theatre, ESL Restaurant Group (Marvin, Chez Billy Sud, El Rey, Satellite Room, Brixton, The Gibson, etc.), W Washington D.C. Hotel, &pizza, Equinox Fitness Club and more.

Having found her niche, Ashley went on to work independently with other popular hospitality and culture-pushing brands such as Rock Creek Social Club and Santoy Hospitality while continuing her relationship with ESL Restaurant Group.

Ashley is known for her vast knowledge of branding, hospitality, results-driven public relations and all things cool in D.C.
