Meet Ashley

I was offered an opportunity to be an event wedding planner while in college. I fell in love with it, and by the time I graduated, I set three personal goals for my future: 

  1. Rebelliously change the event and wedding industry

  2. Become a bad a*# entrepreneur 

  3. secretly use gatherologie to find a sweet + simple backyard to marry my best friend in. 

gatherologie was created in September of 2016 with three company goals in mind: streamline the event-planning process, help people stay within their means, and create unforgettable gatherings. It was a huge leap to start a company, but it has opened such a fulfilling chapter in my life. I'm so grateful for all of the incredible people I've met along the way. It's their kindness, patience, and encouragement that has helped gatherologie blossom into what it is today. Every day we create, experiment, stumble, and thrive. We would love for you to follow us as we chase (and sometimes trip) after our dreams.

I am a Californian, fast friend, and lover of the written word. I graduated magna cum laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 2017 with a degree in English and a minor in Religious Studies.

Throughout college, I worked as a freelance videographer and voiceover artist for startups and nonprofits. I quickly fell in love with entrepreneurship, so when I met Ashley and heard about gatherologie, I could not have been more excited.  

Besides academia and film, my consuming interests include aesthetics, witty banter, my golden retriever (named whiskey), and early morning beach-going.
