Meet The Founder
Founder/Industry Disruptor/Chief Fun Officer
Originally from Houston, Texas, Ashley jumped straight from college to the bright lights of New York City, into corporate life working for over a decade with major beauty, toy, and licensing brands. But too much overtime and not enough ‘me time’ later, she found herself looking around for a change. Nearing burnout, Ashley was eager for something that ignited a flame in her the way working her dream job once had. She knew she was ready for a career change but didn’t quite know where to start.
Enter the notebook that changed her everything.
One night after flipping through an old idea book from college, she came across a promise she’d made long ago to herself to start a stationery business. Her apartment was filled with piles of greeting cards--little mementos of encouragement from loved ones and friends that she cherished through the years.
As a lover of stationery, and a marketing professional with over a decade of corporate experience, our founder's goal was to channel her career experiences into a product with meaning.
And that’s when Ashley knew her next move would be to fulfill her dream of starting a stationery company and Hustle & Hope was born. Channeling her corporate experience, Ashley uses her new passion to remind everyone that a little bit of HUSTLE & a little bit of HOPE, dreams become reality!
