Meet Ashley! Our New Product Expert at Shop/Good!
Ashley found her passion for holistic health after a struggle with severe acne and other health-related issues. Four years ago, she made the full transition to clean living and after seeing immediate results, she’s never turned back. Passionate about sharing what she had learned and the benefits she had seen, she decided to share her wellness journey and created her blog + Instagram @ashleysorganics. Ashley has dreamt of moving to San Diego forever. (yay!) She’s our dream come true too! We are thrilled to have this clean beauty boss join our team.
To learn more about Ashley, we sat down with her in our classic rapid fire Q&A!
