When I first saw Ashley speak at an event I was vending for, I was enthralled. Her passion and knowledge thoroughly impressed me and I immediately went to her with a request to meet with her one on one. At the time, Ashley did not know that I was over 20k in credit card debt, going into foreclosure on my home, and barely surviving on our family’s income. She also did not know that I had a dream to own a new home and be debt free.
Ashley was professional and knowledgeable at our first meeting. She was detailed in her approach and laid out such a clear agenda for us to climb our way out of debt. Two years later, we not only paid of 20k in personal debt, but we saved our existing home AND built a brand new home which we move into THIS WEEKEND.
Ashley- I can’t thank you enough for all you did to show us the ropes. We are more careful with our spending, smart about our investments, we have a better life insurance policy and we have hope for our future. We look forward to continuing to work with you to now make our income work for us for long term!

Ashley and I were classmates at Howard University so I’ve always been impressed with her passion for finance. Prior to working with Ashley, I thought I had a good hold on my personal finances and didn’t really need any outside help. I’m a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and I’ve been managing my personal finances since I was a teenager; however, I reached out to Ashley in late 2014 for support and I am very happy I did. Although I had a good foundation on how to manage my personal finances, I’ve changed the way I think about money and I owe this shifting of my mindset to Ashley. Ashley has coached me through developing various financial strategies, including debt reduction, saving, and investing. I’m so pumped up about money these days- I know I can accomplish my financial goals if I stay disciplined and keep Ashley around! Thank you Ashley for your sound advice and for keeping me accountable.

Soon after Ashley became a financial advisor, she realized that the problem in our community wasn’t just implementation, it was EDUCATION. Not only did Ashley want to help people get investments, she also wanted to teach them the basic fundamentals to ALL financial literacy concepts.
