Hello and welcome to our page! We are so excited to embark on this journey. This idea is nothing new; welcoming new neighbors to local businesses. What makes our situation so unique is the personal connection between the new homeowner and the local businesses we represent. Homeowners are welcomed with a smile and provided with a token of southern hospitality. Welcome to "The Welcome Basket of Williamsburg'!
Welcome & I’m so glad you found us! My name is Ashley and I was born in Jacksonville & raised in Central Florida…and why yes, I am an alumnus of UCF (undefeated 2017 National Football Champions). I’ve been married to my golf-loving & hard-working husband for eight years now. We have one four-year-old son who loves sports & all things active, as well as one-year-old daughter who is always cheery & adores her brother.
When not busy with children, I love being near water, shopping for all things thrifty, and refinishing furniture (which leads to a lot of house redecorating). But let’s be honest my non-busy time usually consists of sitting on the couch, finally having the remote & watching about three-quarters of a Hallmark movie before I’m needed! Oh and coffee…I definitely love my coffee.
Before teaming up with Ashlyn, I was an elementary school teacher where I predominately taught Kindergarten & First Grade. If you are reading this as a local business owner, there is a chance I have taught your child and if so, I hope they enjoyed their experience! As much as I love being in the classroom, I love bringing joy to my family even more. My hope is to spread this joy with Ashlyn throughout the Williamsburg area and help local businesses reach and become closer to their community.
Hello! Thank you for visiting our page! I’m a small town girl from the Shenandoah Valley who attended a small, private, all-female college in Staunton, Virginia. After graduating in 2003, I began my teaching career in elementary education with Hanover County. When my husband and I married in 2009, we decided to move to Williamsburg because we loved the small town feel of this great city! I spent three years teaching in York County and after having my daughter in 2012, I decided to become a full-time mommy. I have been blessed me with two sweet little people; my daughter, a strong, compassionate, princess-loving six-year-old and an always smiling, shark-loving, 4 year-old little boy.
I’m a military wife who adores all things smocked and monogrammed and I have a serious obsession with cheesy Hallmark movies. In my past life, I was an elementary teacher for almost a decade and still can’t believe that the kids I taught are now graduates of college!
