Hello! I'm Ashley, a writer-mom hybrid in Minneapolis.  I write frequently in the health / motherhood / culture beats and am fascinated by the places they overlap.  Lately my sweet spot is personal essays that illuminate culture, but I also love to contextualize what's happening in the world with first-person reporting. Lately, you can find me at Longreads, Refinery29, New York Magazine, and Washington Post.

Looking for writing samples? Here's my portfolio. 

When I'm not collecting bylines, I work as a copywriter and content marketer for corporate and non-profit clients.  Want to work together?  Let's chat. Just want to say hey? That's cool, too.
