Ashley J. Motia

Writer and digital marketing strategist in Fort Wayne, Indiana


I am a freelance digital marketing strategist, writer, and editor. My work has been published in things, I've spoken at events, and I've won awards. But what drives me is helping people--connecting them to solutions, ideas, or other people.

I'm a cat whisperer, a purveyor of geekdom, and obsessed with psychological personality profiling (I'm an INFJ, by the way). I'm a little awkward but always genuine. I've been known to snort when laughing excitedly. And I was voted "Nicest Social Media Peep" in Indiana in 2013, which is clearly a ruse to achieve the master plan of world domination.

When I was 4 years old, I wanted to be She-Ra when I grew up. As I came of age, I retired the dream of being the Princess of Power and discovered a love for storytelling and fascination with understanding what makes people tick. In my spare time, you can find me in the woods, cat whispering, or watching episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (for the millionth time).
