I grew up in a small town in TN. I moved to WA at 17 when I lost my family. I turned to modelling to help me with the loss I suffered. I have a huge love for animals, and natureâ€™s and the two combined is my heaven! Modelling has been a dream of mine since I was 5 and I'm hoping to make my dream come true!
Ashley, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passion and aspiration are to show how strong you can be no matter what you face in this life. I believe everything happens for a reason and I want to live a simple life that I can be proud to say I enjoyed when I'm older.
Who is your inspiration in life Ashley? How do you keep inspired?
I know my family is looking down on me every day and that's enough to inspire me and keep me going strong for them.
We all make mistakes Ashley; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I am new to modelling so I have no modelling situations with others that have caused issues. Although I have, you issued at work and went to the lead to resolve the issues and help create a healthier workplace for myself and everyone involved.
Ashley, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
You listen itâ€™s as simple as that. Listen and act on it. You can help meet everyoneâ€™s needs as long as you follow instruction and keep calm. Stress is what ruins things, and by keeping a calm and cool attitude, you can get more accomplished than you imagine.
Please tell us, Ashley, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I did a shoot at the end of sept and living in WA it's already gotten in the 40s. I had to be in the water for this shoot, and I chose not to feel the pain and let my mind believe it was warmer rather than colder.
Ashley, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Working as a mechanic I love to teach others and help them grow.. we come across things that require a different plan of action that was planned, and I help by giving them my own experiences
Ashley, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
Getting into Maximus finest and making it in the top 30 & 20 has been by far my shining moment!
Ashley, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
We ran out of a certain wire we needed so I combined the size of two, and we were able to use it aim our task instead! It was exciting to see my work being put to use.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Never give up and keep pushing even if you feel like it's something you canâ€™t achieve! It can happen to anyone it takes to drive and desire.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, and I'm not picky so anything and everything.
