BOLD is excited to welcome our newest copywriter, Ashley Ragan, to the team!
This Rochester native describes herself as having “an unequivocal passion for writing, pop culture, digital media, marketing, and the entire scope of the communications world.” A world traveler and an experienced wordsmith, Ashley takes her unique experiences in marketing and communications to BOLD as our newest copywriter.
Here's a bit more about Ashley in her own words...
What's your hometown?
I hail from Rochester, NY, (an hour from Canada!) which I’m currently based in. Prior to moving back, I’ve bounced around considerably between Connecticut (go Huskies!), Boston, and Austin, TX.
Why did you decide to join Bold Strategies?
Having come from a variety of different media roles and recently narrowing down my passion to copywriting, Bold seems like an incredible next company to be a part of! I felt immediately welcomed after meeting with several team members, and I’m ecstatic that I’ll be fine-tuning my writing skills at Bold!
What's the first thing you ever bought on Amazon.com? What does that say about you?
The first thing that I can vividly remember purchasing on Amazon.com was my Osprey backpack in 2015. I can easily pack for two weeks within the confines of a backpack.
What's your favorite book?
"Tiny, Beautiful Things" by Cheryl Strayed. Someday I hope to pen a similar candid life advice book.
What's your favorite place?
Austin, TX; White Sands, New Mexico; Vail, CO; Sedona, AZ; Santorini, Greece; Gijon, Spain; and Galway, Ireland. Picking one is an impossible feat!
"I'm happiest when I'm..."
On the go! Sitting still is next to impossible for me (hence why working remotely is a perfect fit). Wearing a backpack and running to catch a plane, train, and automobile to a new destination and experience is my definition of happiness.
"People would be surprised to know that..."
I have never in my life had a cup of coffee. I cannot stand the taste or smell and I'm pretty confident that coffee will never become part of my daily routine. Also, this isn’t surprising if you know me well, but I refuse to get married until I’ve ventured through all 50 states (currently 31 years of age and have been to 45!)
