Ashley believes that everything has beauty, you just must have an open mind to see it.
Born in Chicago, IL to a Cuban father and a Greek mother, my Spanish and Greek heritage sparked my interest and lead me to fall in love with art, color, and culture. At a young age, I learned that everything has beauty, you just must have an open mind to see it. I grew up in Denver, CO with a single mother, as my father passed away at a young age, and my younger sister. This is where my ambition and dedication to hard work started. Being surrounded by such diversity in Denver lead me to see the beauty in different types of people, places, and art. Also growing up poor I had myself and my sister as a canvas for beauty techniques, makeup, hair, repurposing design, and sewing clothes. It's a love that is embedded in my soul!
I returned to Wisconsin in 2001 drawn here by love, which has been the greatest love of my life. We will be celebrating 14 years of marriage this year and have 3 beautiful children, 18, 14, and 10. We have also built a successful construction company for 18 years now.
In 2018 I started to focus on my own dreams and career goals and stepped back into the workforce. Starting in the medical field getting back to helping people and making them feel amazing. It helped me get back to the passion I had for beauty, so in April 2021 I took my first eyelash course and again fell in love with everything beauty. I am so thrilled to start my lash journey which is just the beginning for me. As a woman with a family history of breast cancer, my ultimate goal is to eventually be able to apply permanent cosmetics (make-up and areola) to cancer patients.
