During college, she spent nine years working in concierge capacities, where she facilitated luxury travel planning for a portfolio of sophisticated and demanding A list travelers across the globe.

Outside of that, she worked for the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) as a Sales Advisor for Premier Services. Throughout her career, she has also fulfilled Executive Assistant and Executive Concierge roles, noting that her key responsibilities were tending to the needs of top customers and C-level corporate executives.
Ashley entered the yachting industry in 2016 as a personal travel concierge and charter assistant. She has experience with assisting clients with all aspects of their charter planning from hotels, dining reservations, photographers and much more. For the past three years Ashley has been a Charter Manager at Worldwide Boat, assisting with hundreds of bookings across the Bahamas, Caribbean and USA, on vessels ranging in size from 75’ – 162’.
As a Charter Manager, Ashley takes great pride in understanding the processes involved with booking a charter from start to finish, providing brokers with detailed, timely responses to their questions and educating owners on yachting industry standards and protocols. She provides excellent communication coupled with her passion for the role and growing her fleet.
When Ashley is not coordinating yacht trips, she is out enjoying life, horseback riding, going on long hikes with her dog Mango, working out, traveling, snorkeling and spending time with family and friends. From her home in Canada, she’s already traveled to multiple locations throughout the United States, The Bahamas, Antigua, Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica and The Netherlands, and plans to check more destinations off her travel bucket list in the future.
