I understand the yearning of wanting to do well and placing high expectations on yourself to be all the things. And now, I get to teach and watch passionate entrepreneurs flourish, achieving what they’ve always dreamed of, and living a life they truly love.

It’s pretty damn fulfilling.

Learning how to be a business owner and a website designer has led me to work with some incredible people.

One caveat, though. Even though I can definitely nerd-out all day long about logos, patterns, and fonts, and wireframes,  my true passion is helping entrepreneurs achieve the success they’ve always dreamed about.

Truth is, I didn’t train to be a web designer or grow up super artsy. In fact, I started my entrepreneurial journey not even knowing what I wanted to do yet.

I just knew I wanted to achieve a work-life balance so I could see my girls grow up, be more present in their lives, and create a legacy for them.

My corporate job and career as an Officer in the Air Force definitely didn’t give me this opportunity and I ended up missing a good chunk of my girls’ lives, which left me dreading every time my alarm clock went off in the morning. (I think most of us entrepreneurs can relate to this.)

Pursuing design and becoming a full-fledged business owner has given me something to be passionate about because I get to leave a positive mark in the world. Plus, my girls love saying that I’m a stay-at-home mom and business owner!

As you can probably guess by now, I’m also passionate about Showit website design and brand strategy!

I’m the founder and lead Showit designer of Wolf & Willow. But I’m also an Air Force veteran, marg-loving gal, skilled gamer (though my competitive husband would try to refute), mom to two beautiful girls, and a wife to my amazing (despite his competitiveness) husband of 16 years.

Pull up a chair and get cozy! We’re all about lasting friendships around here.

Welcome to my corner of the internet.

Hi, I'm Ashlie!

Fun facts about me

I decided to become an entrepreneur in 2019 in Thailand on our honeymoon (14 years after we married)

French fries are my favorite, and I firmly believe they should be their own food group.

I’m a coffee lover by day, margarita snob by night

I have an unhealthy obsession with planners (right now I have 3)

Circle the one that you relate to!

You can catch me (re-)watching a Marvel movie, Supernatural, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I love animals (so I don’t consume them)

I'm an Enneagram 8, which means I am passionate about leaving my mark on the world

I’m a Twitch affiliate, thanks to my passion for Call of Duty

Showit is all we do...

Hana is a freelance copywriter who crafts scroll-worthy website copy. After leaving her job of being the only marketing coordinator at a fashion company, she discovered she wasn’t made for the corporate world. Instead, she found she felt most fulfilled when helping heart-forward entrepreneurs make a positive difference with their talents.

She’s also a passionate, creative, and collaborative soul who thrives in challenging environments. Her dearest held belief is that we’re all capable of greatness — so long as we support and encourage one another. She also believes peanut butter should never be wasted. Ever.

After spending 12 years as an accountant and several years as an Air Force Finance Officer, Ashlie went from full-on corporate employee to full-time entrepreneur and designer. She enjoys spending time with her husband Garrett of 16 years, her two daughters, and their mini zoo (made up of two dogs, two cats, and two rabbits).

When she’s not nose deep in a design project, you can find her sipping a margarita (shaken, rim with salt, if you’re curious), catching up on her favorite TV shows, or scoping out the swankiest restaurants (with vegan options) in town with Garrett.

Meet the team who makes the magic happen

Jaycee is my sweet little girl who is loving, kind, thoughtful, and incredibly intelligent. She will always be the first person to jump in and help out when she sees you struggling, even when you don't ask her. Jaycee has turned me into a better person because of her immense selflessness, boundless positivity, and hunger for learning new things. When she's not nose-deep into a book or learning computer coding, you can most likely hear her trading witty one-liners with her sister and dad.

Jaycee

Although Piper is the more private one in the family, her love and care for others shine bright. She is openly bisexual, and I admire her for not just unapologetically being herself, but also fiercely speaking up for inclusivity and supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Her passion for spreading peace in this world has made all our hearts open up. Piper is also devilishly witty, and her antics never fail to make all of us double over in laughter.

Piper

Garrett is my biggest support system. No matter the situation (for example, when I pitch yet another crazy idea I have), he's always there to encourage me to chase after those dreams. He could also be described as protective, caring, and ruthlessly sarcastic. Even though I hung up my Air Force hat for good, he's still proudly wearing his after 17 years (and counting) of service. Oh, and when he's not working his night shifts, he makes the best drinks.

Meet the cast and crew of my own personal fairytale who really keep the gears turning here at Wolf & Willow

My life team members

My girls are my inspiration for everything, including my business. That’s why our name, Wolf & Willow, is symbolic of my daughters. The wolf represents strength, courage, loyalty, and quiet fierceness - like my oldest daughter, Piper. And the willow? It represents hope, belonging, compassion, and healing — just like my youngest daughter, Jaycee.

The willow is just as strong and brave as the wolf, and the wolf is just as soft and gentle as the willow. One can’t be without the other. They need each other.

Why wolf & willow?

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
