A journey to wellness
Ashley is an UNC Alumni with her BA in Journalism with an emphasis of Public Relations and Advertising Media.
In the midst, of the COVID -19 pandemic Ashley took a leap and founded Candle Culture Company in 2020. Throughout the year she has been featured in Voyage Denver Magazine and NWA magazine. Ashley collaborated with Popl and the BLK App Directory to build her brand and to support small businesses.
In 2018 Ashley started making candles as a way to help cope with her anxiety.
“ For many in the Black community, it can be extremely challenging to discuss mental health simply because of the perception of Mental health issues alone.” “I started therapy young and now venturing into using hemp and cbd products to help manage my mental health." "I plan to help others just like me create safe spaces for wellness and continued healing.”
Ashley started out making soy products but quickly learned that Hemp has more healing properties than soy wax. A year later Ashley has relaunched her brand into an all natural Hemp line.
