As a seasoned professional in finance, Ashley began her career working in purchasing, order fulfillment and accounting under her first business mentor at age 14. Ashley decided to homeschool herself to accommodate her increasing work hours, completing her high school education at 16. She then pivoted to sales, eventually running a branch of Vector Marketing. Using the skills she had gathered, she began consulting for small businesses and start-ups. Eventually, Ashley joined a group of real estate firms, working in property sales, investment analysis, acquisition, capital management and lending, financial reporting, investor relations, and property management. Ashley rose to part-owner and President of Boston Property Management in 2009 and graduated magna cum laude from Babson College. After becoming too ill with EDS, MCAS, POTS, and various comorbidities, Ashley left real estate. She has since taken on a variety of passion projects, helping people and organizations reach their visions and financial goals. Ashley currently resides in Providence, RI with her boyfriend, fish and bunny Winston. She is an administrator for RI EDS Awareness Support Group, and an active member of Toastmasters and What Cheer Writing Club - a Grub Street Affiliate.
