does this sound familiar?

There you are on your way to work and for a quick moment you think ugh, this job is the worst and the monotony of your day to day starts to play over in your head.

Nobody seems to get it -  the crappy commute, the coworkers who just don’t get you or the boss who doesn’t think you are ready for a promotion - you know there is more - you weren’t meant to settle for what you have.

You see people living the dream and wonder how the hell do they do it all? Talk about feeling frustrated, tired and disengaged. All these thoughts make you uncomfortable so you quickly pump your music up and drown them out.

The thought about leaving your current position comes and goes, but actually taking action and going down that rabbit hole is terrifying.

The thought of putting yourself out there makes you feel stressed, anxious and nervous. 

You aren’t sure how you would even begin to position yourself for another role in your current company - let alone find a new job, so you don’t even think about it!

Let me tell you - I have been there - more than once 

You aren’t trapped - YOU can take CONTROL of your career - it’s not too late.

It’s possible, I’ve done it, others have done it, and guess what - YOU can do it too. I went from one soul-sucking job to another until I had a quick reality check and realized it doesn’t have to be this way. I had a choice. I figured out how to leverage my strengths and my network to seek out and obtain an opportunity that was the perfect fit. That's exactly why I created my program to help high achieving women take it to the next level.

Wait! Who the hell am I ?

I’m Ashley - part woman working in corporate america, part badass mama, part coach and part strategist. I keep it real and am committed to helping you take a risk on yourself.

When I first started my career I had no strategy for finding a job and never even thought about what it might take to become a leader. I had a false preconception, things would just work out if I worked hard … not always the case.  I have always had a strong work ethic and very much the "let's get sh*t done, we can do it" attitude but it didn’t seem to be helping me progress. I was working a 9-5 job, and bartending on the weekend to make ends meet. I knew there had to be a BETTER way, there had to be MORE - what the hell was I doing wrong? 

Then it hit me! I needed to have a strategy, a plan, and a blueprint to get where I wanted to go. I needed to start taking risks - BIG RISKS. I had to leverage my leadership capabilities and my network to help me navigate the world I was in. 

Most parents teach their kids lessons in life. Some which can hold them back and others that propel them forward. I was fortunate enough to have a mom who instilled an insane work ethic and taught me the true definition of strength through her battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Having lost her at a point where I was trying to navigate my professional career really shifted my perspective about what is truly important in life.

Life is too short to have regrets - create a life you love, live each day and truly enjoy it. Time passes in the blink of an eye and things change so go for what you really want and don’t hold back.

Your thinking that all sounds great Ashley - but do you have any credentials or are you another person just calling yourself a coach?

I am a Professional Certified Coach with over 10 years of experience working with professionals at companies like Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan and PwC.  Prior to becoming a job strategy and career coach, I worked for a Fortune 500 company (one of the leading global HR services and recruitment firms) as well as a global pioneer in contingent workforce management and currently employed by one of the "Big 4". I have specialized in developing leaders in challenging and fast-growth environments and helping ambitious professionals shift gears to the next big thing. I love arming bada*s women like you with the tools and skills needed to increase your confidence and leadership presence. Working together you will have actionable strategies to level up your career and reach your goals.
