Such an absolute honour to have you on the cover of Playboy! How is this year going for you? This year is starting out great especially with this opportunity and accomplishment. It is an honour to be in Playboy! I am excited to see my career expand. I’m grateful to be healthy and living my best life!

What is at the top of your list to achieve the most this year? My modelling and acting career are my top priorities. I am now in real estate sales so I’m hoping to achieve more success in that industry as well!

What does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman? It’s important to me, from a young age I’ve had a strong worth ethic and this strong passion to makesomething of myself as an independent, strong, smart, and hard-working woman. There’s justsomething about not needing anyone to take care of you that’s so humbling and rewarding.

What would you say makes you stand out in the industry? That’s hard to say because I have heard multiple things from my eyes to the baby-face girl next doorlook, to my personality so hopefully it’s a combination of everything

Where are we most likely to find you if not in front of the camera being glamorous? I would have to say traveling the world. Other than that, I’d be working on my real estate business,doing influencing promotions and campaigns, or hanging with my family and my puppy!

What are some of your biggest passions? Living my life to the fullest, whether that’s traveling to a new place, learning something new exploring a new activity, or starting a new business venture. I’m passionate about being my best self and growing as a person. I’m also passionate about my family, God, and helping people.

3 ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men? Bad teeth, Bad breath, and a man that doesn’t have a job or any ambition.

What are some of the things that attract you to a man? A man with ambition is very attractive to me. I am always striving to be better and I’m a go-getter and I always want that in a partner as well. A man that is independent, financially stable, and well educated is also extremely attractive.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years? I see myself running multiple businesses, modelling, selling real estate and buying real estate, and also hopefully having a baby.

What is the wrong way to approach you as an admirer? There are many ways ha ha I guess the worst way would be to show up at my house or try to send mea bunch of photos of yourself by email or DM.

Where can our readers catch up with you and stay updated with your work? I like to post a lot of my content and updates on my Instagram, you can follow my life and my work on there, my handle is @ashley2me.

We are so happy to have gotten to know you a little bit! Any last words out there for our readers? Thank you so much for taking the time to read this! I hope I have inspired you or someone out there and I hope you’ll give me a follow and show support!
