Hire Me

I provide support services for the communications, project management, and strategic planning needs of small businesses, nonprofits, and female political candidates and elected officials. Levels of service are flexible, so you can contract with me for a few hours per month or a few hours per week.

Think of it this way – it’s like buying sanity. Have a new project to launch but no one to manage all the moving parts? Need communications support yesterday, but don’t want to commit to hiring permanent staff?  Send me an overview of your needs below and I will contact you to schedule an exploratory meeting. If I can’t help you myself, I’ll refer you to a few fabulous women who can.

About the founder

Holly Ashley, Founder

I worked in nonprofit administration for 14 years, and if you’ve ever worked for a nonprofit, you know a job description is a fairly loose concept. I have done everything from operate a pallet jack, to organize a press conference, to manage a board of directors. I’ve had job titles from administrative assistant to Executive Director and nearly everything in between. My undergraduate degree in Human Services Management taught me how to build community, while my MBA taught me how to market and monetize just about anything. Take a peek at my LinkedIn profile if you like.

I think there are too many white dudes in government and corporate leadership, and am currently in love with ALL the lady humans stepping up their civil disobedience and advocacy efforts.

My home in Chattanooga, Tennessee is covered in the infinite fur balls of my retriever Jack and a cat demon named Midnight. I hate clip art, turtles are my introvert spirit animal, and my 15-year-old daughter Isabella is already way cooler than I’ll ever be.

I started ladyHUMANS to be my own boss so I can blend politics, community engagement, and my personal life into a beautifully authentic way of living.
