Ashley’s work is truly inspirational. In just a short workshop, she helped me change the way I calculate – and communicate – my own value. Having my manager on that same workshop motivated a meaningful conversation about how she could do better to advocate for me and my team. I attribute that victory to Ashley’s powerful message. She has a gift of holding up a mirror and gently guiding her clients to see themselves in an enlightened way.

I oversee a woman’s leadership program at CSC and have welcomed Ashley on several occasions. She has presented in person a few times for us and participated in a campus-wide online professional development conference during the Covid pandemic. She brings a lot to the table for our students in that she not only works to help them realize their value in the working world but also discusses their personal relationship with money, which is an eye-opener for many.

Ashley presented Own Your Value & Negotiate for Your Future to the Women in Architecture Committee for the American Institute of Architects. As a Speaker and Coach, Ashley is engaging, open and vulnerable in sharing her own experiences in the corporate world as well as offering her knowledge as a Human Resources professional. This insightful information and encouragement supported our members in navigating work challenges, like continuance of professional advancement during COVID. Ashley’s tools reminded us of our value and that it’s not always automatically recognized. As women, it’s necessary to negotiate our worth continuously throughout our career.

Ashley’s passion is inspirational!  I highly recommend attending one of her sessions and or engaging her to help you understand, own and communicate your worth both personally and professionally.

Ashley’s discussion on self-advocacy and negotiation was the tough love our employees needed. She’s a natural conversationalist and gave folks actionable steps one could take to advocate for themselves. We received validation that being emotional and scared is part of the process, but Ashley showed us we can process the feelings and then prepare to ask for what we deserve. A big takeaway is if you don’t get a “no”, you haven’t asked for enough.

ERG Co-Lead, Justworks

Ashley’s talk made our employees think about self-advocacy in new ways, such as keeping the concept of “own your worth” at the forefront of your thought process and the motivational driver for standing up for what you feel you deserve and have worked hard to earn. Ashley’s talk was inspirational and enabling. Ashley is a captivating speaker using her own personal experiences to connect to her audience while providing actionable insights that can be implemented immediately
