I'm Ashley, a mom-writer hybrid in Minneapolis.  I mostly write personal essays on trauma, mental health, and motherhood and the places they intersect. You can find some of my favorite pieces in Longreads, Refinery29, New York Magazine's The Cut, Catapult, and Washington Post. I'm also a regular contributor at Brit + Co.
