Hi, I’m Ashley Perkins. I’m a digital marketer, chaos-fixer, environmental advocate, and about as Virgo as they come.
I grew up in Eastern Connecticut across the street from a corn field. I attended Norwich Free Academy for high school, then Bentley University for college, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and a minor in Sociology. After those 4 years in the Boston area I packed up and moved to New York City where I’ve lived and worked for over 10 years.
I met my husband here in the city while playing Zogsportsvolleyball. We got married in the summer of 2018, and after our wedding we did something pretty extraordinary: We took 3 months and traveled around the world. A lot of people thought we were crazy. It was absolutely the greatest thing we ever could have done.
During those 3 months away from the corporate world I got really clear on what I wanted out of my life. I realized what’s most important to me: owning my own time, building relationships with smart people who care about the work they’re doing, doing things that bring me joy, and ultimately trying to leave a positive impact on the world.
I now make decisions with intent, with consideration, with purpose.
And so, I started freelancing & consulting in March of 2020. I like the freedom and flexibility that this type of work provides, and I like working with lots of different types of people and businesses. Over the years I’ve learned a ton about all facets of eCommerce so I feel really equipped to be able to help my clients across a wide array of disciplines. I’m really happy doing what I do.
Outside of work I love to cook, travel, play volleyball, hike, read, and go to the beach. I’m hugely passionate about the environment and live a mostly plant-based, low waste lifestyle.
