In case you missed it, I was interviewed by and featured on CareerContessa.com! I was so honored that they asked me to be a part of their “Women Who Lead” series sponsored by White House Black Market. Check out my interview and photos below:
In every role she’s held, one thing’s abundantly clear: Ashley knows the value of hard work. These days, she’s successfully transitioned from the corporate world to working for herself, running a style blog full-time all while also working as a full-time mom to her son, Smith. Busy? Yes. Fulfilling? Absolutely. Here’s her story:
“Funnily enough, I wanted to work at E! and be a host from the time I was eight or so. I loved watching the red carpets and interviews with Jules Asner. So getting to work at E! for seven years as a reporter and producer was awesome.
These days, I am living out my dream of being on-camera as a style expert! I’m a full-time lifestyle blogger that writes about personal style, fashion trends, beauty tips and tricks, home décor, and family and I share fashion trends and advice on channels like KTLA and AOL.com. I also do a little personal styling to stay sharp!
