As one of the original voices of the coworking movement, Ashley has been building collaborative communities since 2003 in Toronto, Seattle, and Vancouver.
As an artist and serial entrepreneur, Ashley is in her element while destroying the term ‘impossible’ and creating opportunities for unexpected and meaningful human connections.
Ashley is the Executive Producer of GCUC Canada (Global Coworking Unconference). As one of the founding members of the Coworking Toronto and Coworking Ontario collectives, Ashley also created COHIP — the world’s first Coworking Health Insurance Plan — providing accessible health and dental benefits for all independent workers in Canada.
Through her work with the organizations Xpace, Foundery, Creative Blueprint, and 312 Main, Ashley has been recognized as a leader in the coworking industry and she now consults and mentors clients and emerging collaborative networks around the world to help create sustainable and impactful community initiatives.
