Accustomed to working in fast-paced environments, Ashley is very organized and has a head for remembering highly specific details. She began her career in Chicago as an intern interior designer, conducting research on social media and the workplace. She was then hired in 2012 to run a design website in New York, where she managed social media, monitored traffic and analytics, and created original content for the site. Ashley later worked for Cipriani restaurants, producing high-end, large-scale events for their venues, including corporate meetings, nonprofit galas, sporting and fan events, televised award shows, and even the occasional rock star's birthday. Managing more than 200 events a year, she learned the importance of coordination, communication, and customer service.
Ashley graduated from Purdue University with a B.A. in interior design and space planning. When she is not working, she enjoys being outdoors, traveling, and experimenting in her new (much larger than her old one in Brooklyn) kitchen.
