Hey. I’m Ashlee.
I’ve worked remotely for a decade now. But, that wasn’t always the case. Back in the day, I had a regular office job with a one-hour commute — each way. I tried (and failed) to climb the corporate ladder and was left exhausted by office politics.
Most days, I was unhappy. My job paid the bills but left me feeling like I was missing out on something. As it turns out, that ‘something’ was telecommuting.
The introvert in me was left exhausted by water cooler talks and I often felt I could get so much more done if only I didn’t have meetings and constant interruptions of coworkers. Sound familiar?
That’s when I researched remote work. Ten years ago, it wasn’t as prevalent as it is today. But, it was beginning to trend and I knew I wanted a part of it. So, I put in my two weeks’ notice and left the cubicle life behind to work remotely as freelance writer and self-employed career coach.
And, here I am, ten years later still living the remote life with a greater sense of purpose and happiness. Over the last decade, I’ve worked to become a Certified Professional Career Coach and member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers. I’ve also been recognized by Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and was named one of the top 20 Female Career Coaches in 2020 by Talent LMS.
What do you specialize in?
I specialize in remote work! I’m a longtime remote worker myself and advocate for out-of-the-cubicle careers. You shouldn’t have to commute to work every day, if you don’t want to.
With my practical experience and professional training, I’m able to help office workers across all industries transition to remote work.
Is career coaching right for me?
Maybe. Career coaching is a big commitment. Only you can answer whether or not you’re willing (and able) to be coached. Successful coaching comes with weekly check-ins, homework and various job search tasks that need to be completed. No excuses.
How much do you charge?
It depends on the services you’re interested in and your ultimate goal. Someone wanting a major career change compared to a current remote worker that needs some guidance is a lot different, and their coaching experience will be different too.
Can you write my resume/LinkedIn/cover letter for me?
I am a member of the Professional Associate of Career Coaches and Resume Writers. While I could write your resume for you as well as your LinkedIn Profile and cover letter, it’s best that you take the lead with your career marketing materials.
What I will do is audit your resume, LinkedIn profile, cover letter and social media presence and provide written feedback to improve them. Even Google’s HR Chief says you should not pay someone to write your resume — and it’s great advice.
The more active you are in your own job search the greater your results.
What I’m About.
Through weekly calls or Zoom video chats, one-on-one coaching is at the heart of what I do. I’m also readily available via email or text — whatever works best for you.
LinkedIn, resume or cover letter feeling drab? Let’s refresh it together. I can objectively look at your marketing materials from a professional perspective and provide feedback to help polish them to perfection.
Whether you want a career change or need a new job, your skills will play an important role in determining which direction to go. I will identify your hard skills and soft skills that transfer well to remote work.
Career coaching should be available for everyone. That’s why I offer different career coaching packages for every budget.

Remote job boards are the best places to find real work from home jobs. Sure, you can find remote work on big-name sites like Monster, Indeed, and CareerBuilder. But, you have to sort through a lot of non-remote roles to find the real remote jobs. This can end up costing you extra time, energy and…
Remote work is more common now than ever before. An estimated 4.3 million people in the US work remotely — and that was BEFORE the start of the pandemic. Even still, not everyone has a job that is remote friendly. For example, service workers, tradesmen, construction workers, first responders, and many other professions are traditionally…
