I know I can always count on Ashley to deliver clean, well-researched, engaging copy that's on time. She's easy to work with and responsive to edits. Plus, her knowledge of and experience in the fitness world (specifically running) is a huge asset.

I edit between 15 and 20 health stories a week, and there's nothing more valuable to me than a writer who consistently turns in clean, accurate, well-researched, and well-sourced copy—and that's Ashley. But her articles are also incredibly fun to read, as they're so well-written and well thought-out. I wish she had time to write every single story I need to assign, because she's just that good!
