Ashley is just a girl … standing in front of a boy … asking him to love her. Oh wait, that’s somebody else.
Ashley is Head Gal at AlwaysFits.com. AlwaysFits.com is a unique gift shop, known for its feminist, sweary, 80’s & 90’s nostalgia vibes. (Ashley is also President of The Funtrepreneur, Inc, the company that owns AlwaysFits.com and any other ideas Ashley cooks up!)
Ashley loves the Golden Girls, feminism, tragically lame soft rock, Bev from The Goldbergs, self-deprecating humor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, alliteration, and her 5 year old daughter - but not necessarily in that order.
The Funtrepreneur, Inc. is quickly approaching its 10th anniversary, under Ashley’s creative and strategic direction. She serves as an adviser and subject matter expert for GLG and Guidepoint Consultants. Her areas of expertise are product trend forecasting, the e-commerce and retail industries and public relations.
Ashley is a trusted public relations resource with media placements on The Today Show, as well as in Vanity Fair, Better Homes & Gardens, Elle, Redbook, Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, Women’s Health, Scary Mommy and hundreds of other national, online and regional publications. When editors need cool things yesterday, they write to Ashley.
Previous to starting her company in 2009, Ashley worked for Ambassador Swanee Hunt, planning political events, including a women’s symposium at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. Also back when Ashley had a boss, she worked as director of hotel logistics for the 2004 Kerry/Edwards presidential campaign, as well as planned events for Goodwill in Boston.
In 2012, Ashley shared some business lessons with American Express. To read that article, click here.
