What Clients Think

Ashley is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to understanding and implementing a curricular approach. During our workshop she was able to help us re-frame our thoughts on intentional learning, and expand our knowledge on what it means to be educators in residential life. Ashley has a plethora of skills that helped move our group forward from foundational knowledge toward executing an action plan toward a curricular approach.

Ashley did an amazing job helping us understand and start our curricular approach. She is a skilled facilitator and was able to effectively guide our team to concrete action items as we start to implement a residential curriculum. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking to improve their current work and solidify their focus on student learning.

Working with Ashley was a true game-changer for our student experience. Ashley worked alongside us as we took a hard look at what we were providing in our residential curriculum and how we were assessing those needs. Her consulting work helped bring the ideas we had been working on for 2 years together in our first year of implementing a curriculum. I strongly encourage you to chat with Ashley if you are looking to bring your residential education program to the next level!
