Ashley is an award-winning Independent Filmmaker from Northern Kentucky. Her first film, “No Lost Cause” is currently internationally distributed and was recently featured on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network). Her memoir recalling her experience creating a film on a micro budget, “The Why Not Philosophy or How We Learned to Let Go, Trust God and Defeat the Raptors,” was released February 2015 and is available on Amazon.com. Her second feature film, “The Hepburn Girls” is also currently available on Amazon.com and Vimeo.com

Ashley is also a long-time lover of all things theatre and in the spring of 2014, she helped found and became the Vice-President of the brand new theatre company based in rural Henry County, “The Theatre Downstream.” 

Now, four years later, Ashley is serving as President as TTD hits their first milestone with a fifth season. Of the twelve plays the company has performed, Ashley was fortunate to be able to serve as director (or co-director) for eight shows, and playwright for three. Their first summer musical, “Beauty and the Beast” was awarded Best Musical (Local), Best Actor in a Musical (Local), Best Actress in a Musical (Local), and Best Set Design by the 2016 BroadwayWorld Louisville awards; while their drama “The Miracle Worker” was awarded Best Regional Play for 2018 from the same company.

No matter what the project, Ashley is happiest when she is able to bring talented people and their art together for the consumption and appreciation of the public. While her taste remains vintage, she is grateful for the technology of the modern world and the opportunity to share her thoughts, aspirations and misadventures.

Her lofty dreams are to create things that people remember, finally finish her long-worked on novel, and to one day own an alpaca. Above all, she loves God, her family, and all her pets (dog, cats & chickens.)

    No Lost Cause is a family favourite in our house here in Australia!
    My teenage sons love the scene where Beth Ann pulls faces at the children in the drs clinic, I love when Nick says Beth Ann is grumpy when she wakes in the afternoon, and my husband loves when your character is standing by the car near the film’s ending and then Beth Ann and Nick look over and you sheepishly get back in the car. (We all crack up at that part actually haha)
    Even though it has serious themes throughout the movie, we laugh at so many moments! Its in our top 10 movie list 😄

    • Steph!! Thank you so much!! It still amazes me how messages like yours can reach me at just the moment I need to hear them to be encouraged! And thank you so much for all the compliments about the film…it was such a sweet labor of love for our small group of friends, and to know that it’s reached halfway across the world makes me teary-eyed with surprise and gratitude.
