Born and raised in Charlotte, home for Ashley is a transitional state, often found in the fascinating travels of the world around her. She can find herself right at home just about anywhere! And that’s how she prefers it, always seeking new adventures to get immersed in and learn from. Ashley loves to travel like a local wherever she goes, move over Rick Steves! While more unique trips overflowing with natural scenic beauty is her jam (dude ranches, National Geographic expeditions, safaris, hiking slot canyons, snorkeling pristine waters, European river cruises, luxury railways, etc.), who doesn’t also squeal over pool side at a five star resort, a day at the theme parks or a great week on the beach?! And as a mom to teenage girl/boy twins, you’ll often find them happily along for the ride. For there’s simply no better gift than the adventure of travel. It inspires, informs and elevates the human experience unlike anything else. So, if you like pina coladas and gettin caught in the rain, then I’m the one that you’ve looked for, write to me and escape.
