Hi! I'm Ashley, and I'm a writer-mom hybrid living and freelancing in St. Paul, MN.  I write frequently in the health / motherhood / culture beats and am fascinated by the places where they overlap.  Lately I write mostly personal essays that illuminate greater parts of culture, but I also love to contextualize what's happening in the world around me with first-person reporting. I write weekly for Brit + C0., a women's lifestyle site, and I've also recently had work in Washington Post, Catapult, and New York Magazine's The Cut.  Looking for clips? Here's my portfolio. 

When I'm not collecting bylines, I can be found writing copy for a number of contract clients--usually web copy, in-bound marketing blog content, e-courses and workbooks, and social media content.  Want to work together? I'm always game to hear about freelance work.  Just want to say hey? That's cool, too.
