As she walked across Waterloo Park, Foreman Management, a boutique Austin model scouting family, approached her.

Since then she has lived between NYC and Paris as a internationally recognized model. Ashley as worked for brands such as Diesel, Alexander Wang, Forever 21, and Topshop, and has walked the runways of Chanel, Balenciaga, and Altazura.
