Ashley became interested in religion, because she loves books. From the illustrated Bible she had as a kid to the Tao Te Ching she picked up
in high school, books guided her interest in religion. Well, books and travel. Ashley can still recall lighting incense in a Buddhist temple in China at the age of six.
Now a days, Ashley spends her time working on her dissertation so she can get her Ph.D. from the University of Colorado-Boulder. She also holds an M.A. in journalism, an M.A. in Religious Studies, and a B.A. in Religious Studies. Needless to say, Ashley has spent most of her life studying religion, politics, and culture.
Ashley is the one woman team behind Religionish. She hosts, produces, and edits all the content you hear in the show.
She also does the occasional freelance writing and editing for a variety of publications -- from religion journalism to content marketing.
