I am a lover of life, food, places and all things people. I am newly married, equally as new of a stepmom (of 4!) and a recently transplanted Chicagonian. My day would not be complete if it did not involve a large quantity of coffee, lots of laughter and a few solid hours of social media.
Several years in the corporate world helped me to realize that white gloving intricate formalities to coworkers, or to people I never got to meet, left me deeply unsatisfied. I had spent many successful years in the hospitality industry which was a great way to connect with people but I did not feel that industry was the right fit for me, my new family and what I wanted for our future.
My husband and I moved to greater Chicago this summer, and I was looking for ways to meet other women in the community. This search led me to the founder of Housewives in the City, based in NOVA. I have been to several of her events and they were so impactful on me!
Housewives in the City was not available in the this area yet which opened a window for creating the Chicago chapter. I absolutely love Chicago, it is the cleanest, most friendly concrete jungle I have ever trekked in; what an awesome solution for my desire to connect with people! I am so thrilled to help unite women all over the Chicago area with our monthly GNO events!
Hi, I'm Ashley!
