Ashley Massis

New York, NY

Originally from Binghamton, New York, Ashley is small town girl who moved to the Big Apple and took a chance. After finding heartbreak in love and in her career, she picked up everything she knew and never looked back. Small Town Girl and the Big City is her experiences, wisdom, and embarrassing anecdotes of what she’s learned so far. She's a fashion obsessed, workaholic...balancing a life of high heels and special events, with one of flannel, sweatpants, and bonfires. She's obsessed with traveling, with old Hollywood glamour, speakeasies, and trying to find the best mac and cheese in New York City.

After graduating with a degree in Business and English, her drive, motivation, and “old soul” qualities have given her the essential tools to survive, but not “City Girl” knowledge.

After working in fashion for 6 years and as the New York City Editor of the online “Where Charity Meets Style” Magazine, Ask Miss A-The New York Empress , she moved onto a new passion project. Ashley founded NY Social Status: a younger based demographic online magazine targeted towards keeping you in the “NOW”. As Founder/Editor In Chief, she works with a talented group of upcoming writers in the New York City area to provide “Tastes, Trends, and Tunes”.

Currently, she is juggling double lives in both New York City and Charlotte, North Carolina as she tracks down the best of each city.
