About Ashley

Hey there, I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m a professional marketer and writer with a strong passion for helping small businesses in developing their brand narratives and leveraging the power of local search.

Looking for a Digital Marketing Consultant? I’m Your Gal.

My marketing experience spans marketing project management and strategy, social media/digital marketing, content creation, branding, SEO/SEM, web optimization, and analytics.

Content Building: I’ve directed strategic, high-impact digital and print marketing initiatives that drive engagement, marketplace visibility, and ROI.

Culture-Building: I’ve built and directed cohesive teams and collaborated with top decision-makers to drive core business goals. I’m also fascinated by trends in the future of work (particularly for millennials), and how companies can increase employee productivity, give back with corporate responsibility programs and create meaningful work through career growth, inspiring colleagues, and D&I initiatives.

Community-Building: I love people, and I love building a community, both within an organization and beyond. I’m a freelance and contributing writer for local publications in Cherokee County, and I dedicate time to give back to the community through involvement in board positions and outreach initiatives.

The Fun Stuff’s Down Here

Oh, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd!
She was a vixen when she went to school.
And though she be but little, she is fierce.

Act 3, Scene 2, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

I’m a tiny, fiery Southern redhead (Or used to be. I prefer teal these days). I’m fueled by a curious mind and an empathetic sensibility, and I’m driven by a desire to inspire passion and spark joy.

I started a blog in college as an outlet to get whatever was swirling around in my brain out and on a page. (Or a screen, as it were.) Shortly thereafter, I discovered that I love connecting brands with their audience through the art of storytelling, which has been my calling for the last fifteen years.

I married my best friend and we live in Woodstock, GA (our beautiful, award-winning city unexpected!) with our two boys. I’m told I have a fierce mouth and a kind heart—neither of which you’ll find is untrue.

 

Ask Me About:

– The impact of your local arts organization and why it’s important.

– How to get involved in your local community and why you’ll love it.

– Where to find the most mouthwatering local Juicy IPAs

– The best piazzas, churches and neighborhoods to explore in Florence, Italy

– Backyard bird songs: “Is it a warbeler or a wren?” 

I’ve never met a personality test I didn’t like. 

Here are a few of my results.

Gallup Strengths Finder: Discipline, Empathy, Input, Intellection, Developer
