WHAT I'M ALL ABOUT

Hi, I’m Ashley! 👋 I specialize in communications management, digital content creation and curation, and I enjoy applying my analytical skills to solve problems. I’ve also got a sharp eye for good design, a quick wit for writing engaging copy, and an insatiable desire for grammatical correctness in all forms of writing (#GrammarNerd 🤓). I’m currently seeking a new role to that will integrate my communications and content creation skills with my passion for solving problems to improve quality of life for people (in Chattanooga, TN or remote).

Helping people become their best selves is my passion. I have a natural gift for providing encouragement, empathy, and compassion - all of which pour over into my work. I hold a B.S. in Psychology, which has given me the tools I need as a marketer to put people at the forefront of any good digital marketing effort. I believe that people crave connection and good marketing can provide that connection. I’m currently pursuing my Master’s in Industrial-Organizational Psychology and am eager to see where this new path will lead me in my career journey. While I’m not sure yet what career I will land in after graduating in December 2020, I know I want to work in a capacity that will allow me to help companies create a dynamic balance between the needs of their employees and their company goals through analytical problem solving, applied I-O psychology research, and authentic human connection.

If all of this is sounding like a good fit for your company’s needs, let’s connect. I’d love to talk to you about your company’s goals and how I can become a part of the awesome work you’re doing in the world!
