I’m Ashley - a freelance journalist and communication specialist - nice to e-meet you! Cannabis is a special industry and it's important to have an expert in your corner. In 2018 I turned my 'home hustle' into a full time gig, working as a professional freelancer in the cannabis industry.

Freelance isn’t a code word for unemployed - over the last 3 years I’ve built a successful career in cannabis. I specialize in storytelling, copywriting, and digital marketing in Canadian cannabis and beyond.

I’m not a CEO - I’m a one woman show.

As a journalist I focus on cannabis industry news, medical cannabis & the patient perspective, and creating lifestyle content that matters. I like to combine reporting and storytelling to reduce stigma around cannabis.

I’m not just a ‘woman in weed’ - I’m also a patient! My dynamic disability requires a variety of treatments, including cannabinoid therapy. I offer insight from the patient perspective, using my own experiences to normalize chronic illness and medical cannabis.

As a consultant, I use my 5+ years experience in communications - specializing in content development, editing, and digital marketing strategy. I use my way with words to help brands and businesses engage and educate, build brand awareness, and drive sales.

Email me if you need help with articles/reporting, content development, communications strategy, branding/marketing, social media posts/strategy, and copywriting of any kind.
