Ashley’s a downtown guru and has her finger on the pulse of what’s happening locally and in NC in general! While out and about, you may run into Ashley and her two fur babies as she’s always checking out the city and the exciting growth taking place.

While Ashley loves the modern aesthetics applied in completing new spaces, she appreciates how the character and integrity have been maintained in some of the city’s oldest and most historical places.
