Awesome people I’ve gotten to work with that liked me too
InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
Ashley remains one of the most talented designers I know. I’ve seen her be extremely regimented with her approach to rolling out design projects that we’ve worked on together. Her process of getting feedback from clients was warm and encouraging and at the same time regimented.
She’s also pursued continuous improvement in her work. Her regular writing on design has been instructive to me and has helped her further enhance her communication.
She’s also a gifted leader. I’ve seen her work to raise the overall design literacy within InterVarsity by regular lunch and learns, bringing more inexperienced co-workers along, and by her willingness to lead project teams.
She both produces great work and is consistently looking to update her design. I’m grateful to know her professionally!

Dallas Give Camp
Ashley and I have worked on several projects over the years. Our first two were at Dallas GiveCamp #codeitforward
I’ve worked with perhaps a dozen designers and UX experts over the past four years and Ashley easily stands out as one of the most thoughtful and thorough I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Even for projects we were volunteering on she showed up on Day 1 for us with site maps, comprehensive information architecture battle plans, wireframes, and logos IN HAND. This is more than I’ve ever had delivered from a designer or UX team member so early on, before or since. Her passion for her craft is unmistakable.
Her knowledge of web development in general was an extremely pleasant surprise; when I realized all of the comps she provided for each project were easily accomplishable within the limitations of the platform for each project, I probably spent more time thanking her for all the thought that went into it, than writing CSS and JS to implement her vision. I’m honestly not sure how she does it.
She has since our first GiveCamp in 2014, been my go to person when I acquire freelance work for any projects large enough to require a dedicated UX + Information Architecture person (even now that she lives across the country). And if she lived in the DFW still, I would be doing everything in my power to get her on our design team full time.

Ansira October 2015 — October 2016
I had the privilege of working with Ashley for a year at Ansira, and collaborated closely with her on a number of large projects. Ashley is impressively knowledgeable of her industry, and is passionate about creating work that is effective, using practices supported by testing and evidence. I continue to use what she taught me to this day in order to strengthen my own designs and how to use data to more competently defend them.

Global Media Outreach May 2013 — October 2015
Ashley is a dedicated employee who has a vision for the future, knowledge of how to get there, and determination to get the job done. She moves very quickly and thrives in a start up environment where tasks may be ambiguous, need ownership, or a champion to move them from conception to production.
— Justin Miller, VP of Technology at Seed Project
Ashley gets stuff done. She is tenacious at hitting deadlines and being productive. At the same time, she possesses great vision, especially with her so new in her career.
Ashley was key at developing and launching our primary discipleship platform so that it scales to other languages and owners. She designed the site including the UX/UI while removing the dependency on her to grow the tool.
— Aaron Bloss, Director of Digital Distribution at Global Media Outreach
Taggable Stories 2014
I had the great opportunity to have Ashley perform a user experience review for my Taggable Stories application. Ashley immediately identified areas where my design needed necessary improvements. What I valued the most was how she was able to communicate to me as a developer several insightful suggestions that helped me make the right changes in order to avoid frustrations that my current users were experiencing with the app. Ashley also designed beautiful UI elements that gave my app a new spark. I am really pleased with the flexibility and quality of Ashley’s work, I would definitely seek her advice on future projects.
