Growing up in Woodlawn, Ashley witnessed the neighborhood’s transformation through initiatives like Woodlawn Street Market (WSM) and REV Birmingham. Inspired by her community’s revitalization, she noticed an increase in minority business owners and wants young individuals to see they, too, can turn their passion into a successful business.

She realized the need for her skills here in Birmingham and began her business in 2017. She offers holistic treatments, using meditation music, sound bowls, crystals, CBD products, and calming treats to address anxiety and promote overall health.
The Urban Dog Mom also values the importance of nutrition and makes homemade healthy dog treats with natural ingredients like strawberries, chia, turmeric, dog-friendly herbs, and flax seeds. Ashley is dedicated to providing dogs with wholesome, chemical-free food to ensure a healthy and long life, including her own fur babies, Nico, Mila Rose, and JT.
