I help women like you:
get clarity & alignment
"Because with clarity, consistency, and a little creativity success becomes inevitable."
I'm Ashley, Women's Career Coach, aspiring author, founder of
The Female Leadership Club, tired mother, and self-proclaimed badass.
People always ask me:
"BUT WHY? ARE YOU CRAZY? DON'T YOU HAVE ENOUGH ON YOUR PLATE WITH FOUR KIDS, A HUSBAND, AND A FULL TIME JOB?"
And I always respond:
"Because I want to. Yes, a little. Absolutely yes. Again... yes."
But listen... at some point during my career I realized that there just weren't enough resources, connections, and mentors available to women who want grow their career the right way & on their terms.
And no one was doing anything about it.
So, I did something about it.
"I'm honored to
have helped dozens of determined women get clarity on their goals, find their confidence, and advance both professionally & personally."
I like to get sh!t done
but I also like to have fun...
and I like to live in a world where it's perfectly acceptable (encouraged, even) to do both.
psst. I'm currently accepting new clients!
want to learn more about me?
This is getting personal.
(jk. I like you too.)
My Quick & Dirty Story:
I started my career right out of high school, and worked my way "up the corporate ladder"
by figuring out for myself what worked - or more accurately, what didn't work.
In the last decade:
I went from being a part-time customer service rep to implementing Continuous Improvement strategies for ~300 people in under 6 years.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree by taking classes in the evenings, after work.
I went from making $10/hour to bringing home a six-figure income to my family.
I received my Six Sigma Blackbelt certification.
I lead countless strategic workshops, training classes, and CI events;
developing a robust community of problem solvers & future leaders that
I am still so proud of
"There's plenty of business books written by men for men; but they didn't speak to me. I didn't want to learn how to be a businessman. I wanted to learn how to leverage my uniqueness. I wanted to learn how to be a woman and be taken seriously in a man's world. In order to do that, I had to pave my own way."
BUT it wasn't easy, Y'all.
I had to learn how to speak up and be taken seriously
(because I was usually one of the only women in conference rooms)
I experienced mom-guilt regularly and I traveled a lot
(once only 1 week after returning from maternity leave)
I dealt with burnout, frustration, and mental fatigue daily
I put up with benevolent sexism, inappropriate comments, gender bias
I sacrificed my mental health, my physical well-being, and came thiiiiiis close to ruining my marriage
