About Me

Hello! My name is Ashley.  I live in an old house in coastal Virginia with my husband (Jason), three kids, dog, and hens. You’ll find me here carving out a small digital space where I write about bits of my life and the city that I live in.  I often write about uncomfortable topics. Sometimes prose. Sometimes poetry. About anything, really. I’m just here to get things off of my chest and into words, forming a bond between people, you, through language.

I am currently working part-time as the communications director at my church, and I’m also building a new  non-profit that helps to build gardens at public schools. Around my house you’ll find me reading, gardening, writing, vacuuming, cooking, watching Netflix, eating and drinking with friends and neighbors, and goofing around with my kids. Sarcasm is kind of my thing and saving the environment is on my bucket list.

    Love hearing your voice from afar, since I can’t in person.

    Hi Ashley – I enjoyed reading your article on local politics and the Norfolk Mayoral race. I noticed you didn’t mention Bob McCabe as a candidate for mayor. If you’d like to talk with Bob or learn more about him too, please shoot me an email, Thanks for helping to engage people in this election!
