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.)
