Despite her Hoosier roots, Ashley is a University of Louisville graduate. Originally interested in journalism, Boxcar’s Storyteller found that she could tell the stories of brands through public relations. Naturally, a communication degree with an emphasis in strategic communication was a great fit. While in college she balanced multiple internships, jobs and school, along with her blog about “The Bachelor.” She has four years of experience in marketing, PR, events and social media in various industries. Ashley spent her first year after graduating working for Yum! Brands in the Social Hive and consulting with a lifestyle PR firm. Her most recent role was a community and media manager at a digital agency, where she worked on social media strategies, created content, conducted media buys and tracked results for alcohol beverage accounts.
When she isn’t working, Ashley can be found blogging at bachelorexpert.com, going to concerts, watching TV and convincing her fiancé they should get sushi again that week.
