Ashley grew up as a farm girl in rural North Dakota with her parents, older brother, and younger sister. She attended kindergarten through college in her hometown of Mayville, N.D., where she earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education.
After college, she decided to spread her wings and leave her home state. She lived in Colorado and Missouri before moving back to the area and making Minnesota her permanent home. Often found with Ashley is her four-legged, tail-wagging chocolate lab, Gus. This sidekick has some serious FOMO if he’s not included in her every move.
Ashley loves the art of making her house a home. She’s not afraid to tackle a DIY or interior design project once in a while and appreciates the outcome so much more when she has been hands-on in the process of making a vision a reality.
When she’s not working, Ashley loves to host and entertain friends and family (whether or not there’s an occasion!). Bringing people together makes her incredibly happy, and you better bet there’s never a shortage of good food, drinks, and contagious laughter.
Ashley also enjoys traveling as often as possible. Her mantra? “Life is short and the world is wide!” She’s visited many places in the U.S. as well as abroad. Next up on her bucket list: Banff, Norway, and hopefully one day Bora Bora!
Ashley’s WHY is to educate, coach, and lead others so that they, too, can rise up and be successful.
Ashley’s interesting fact is that although Minnesota is nicknamed “The Land of 10,000 Lakes”, it has at least 11,842 lakes of 10 acres or more. Let that sink in! And don’t forget she’s always ready to help you find a lake to call home.
