New Orleans, Louisiana
Ashley Love is an author, poet, entrepreneur and activist, but her most rewarding role is mother. She is the single mother of three daughters who are 3, 5, and 8.
A native of New Orleans, Ashley has always had a passion to motivate and inspire people to go for their dreams and not let the road blocks they face stop them from making progress.
For many years, due to a lack of confidence, Ashley did everything, but go towards the vision God had for her. She entered the medical field and was unhappy. She let people's opinions affect her actions. She drifted away from her one true passion of writing.
At 18, she had her first child. By twenty, she was the mother of two. Soon after she was married, and then divorced with three children. She was ready to give up. Her mother was battling cancer and her grandmother was dying before her eyes. She could do nothing, but put all of her faith in God and let him bring her life back on course. That is what she did.
She is the founder of her own personal/professional/artist development business, Charged Visions, and leads the phenomenal tribe #ElegantlyChargedVisionaries.
In 2013, Ashley co-founded Poets Against Bullying, an organization of people who are tired of staying quiet and letting bullying and abuse destroy the lives of many children, as well as adults. PAB's mission is to Speak Up and Reach Out with Spoken Word by hosting open mic night across the country and is in the process of starting a blog talk radio show. The book will be released on April 30th. PAB was also invited to various events in Atlanta in August in connection with the Neighborhood Awards, hosted by Steve Harvey.
Ashley was selected to have her own chapter, Tainted Not Broken, in a book and movement called Head Ladies in Charge. This movement features women who have overcome the obstacles in their lives and through their transparency, they are willing to share their experiences to give others the strength and tools they need to overcome the things that are hindering them from making progress in their lives. The book will be released in March 2014. Ashley will also have her own chapter in the “I AM” book and will tell her story on being bullied and how she overcame it. I AM will be released April 7, 2014.
