“I'm a crafter of brands. I help translate values into action. I connect brands with communities. I build engagement campaigns that elect presidents, launch start ups, and change the world. Let's do some good together.”
After 12+ years of a unique professional career of brand building, digital marketing, and political strategy—Ashley sits at the intersection of culture, politics, and activism. After serving as the Ohio Digital Director for the 2012 re-election campaign of President Barack Obama, she left the private sector to focus her efforts on building political power in the communities that need it the most. She has advised non-profits, campaigns, and corporations on strategic communications, digital content and engagement, and political mobilization to encourage action through integrated online and offline strategies.
Ashley has been recognized by Advertising Age as one of 40 under 40 Marketing Leaders, one of "50 Women Who Made the 2012 Election” by the Huffington Post, and "Top 20 in their 20's" by Crain’s Chicago Business.
