I love to sing, go on random adventures and I'm always up for anything my friends throw at me. I love tattoos and currently have seven of them. I got my first one at the age of seventeen, a baby penguin which is my favourite animal. I'm an animal lover, huge music fan, and avid reader/ craft, enthusiast.
Ashley, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
My passions in life are helping people, animals, and music. My aspirations are to one day have a family of my own to care for. The idea of modelling got instilled in me in the 6th grade when my best friend at the time was already modelling professionally and said she'd thought I'd be perfect for it. It wasn't until 2015 when my boyfriend gave me a push to model for Suicidegirls.com, and I've been doing that ever since.
Who is your inspiration in life Ashley? How do you keep inspired?
My boyfriend. He keeps me inspired every day to live my dreams and work hard so we can have a future together
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.
Honestly, I don't think I've ever had any issue like that at all.
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?
I haven't had that type of experience yet but probably the same way I handle things at my job. Prioritize by deadlines, what needs to be done first.
Please tell us, Ashley, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I usually start planning a week or two for a shoot. Clothes, makeup, nails, etc.
Ashley, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
It wasn't so much persuading as it was teaching someone the right way to go about things
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 just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
My second set on suicidegirls.com, "Talk Hockey to Me ". All the pictures were just gorgeous, well shot, and I felt like it showed the real me.
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?
Every set for Suicidegirls.com is creative. They all have themes, and I think the hardest part is not only coming up with a theme but with a set name
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?
Work hard and don't give up on your dream even when you want to.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I am open to any and all collaborations
