Ashton created AMPR to pursue her two passions: sharing compelling stories and bringing awareness to innovative ideas.

Pushing social boundaries and sharing positive messages have been the foundation for every career decision. Story telling has always been Ashton’s forte, believing that everyone has a story to tell and people’s passions become clear if you dedicate your time and attention to learning about them. 

Her experience in sales, public relations and social media management, combined with a love for creative writing, create an unparalleled strategic perspective.

Focusing on giving back, Ashton works closely with Dress for Success Toronto to help women achieve economic independence.
