Meet Ashley

Speaker. Award-Winning Author. Explorer. Mom.

Doing life my way as a military widow.

At 6 months pregnant with her third child, Ashley received a phone call that would forever change the path of her life and that of her children. Ashley's husband, a naval officer, died in a tragic scuba diving accident, leaving her heartbroken, pregnant and alone with her kids on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

 

Summoning every ounce of grit, stubbornness and sheer determination within, Ashley has figured out how to move through the greatest adversity and from it, turn this tragedy into a triumph. This is her journey in finding the strength and courage to rebuild her life. 

 

If you want to do something, do it now. Live a life you will remember.

The Movie

About The Movie:

Three children, three adults, eight countries and two months. After losing my husband in a tragic scuba diving accident in May 2018, my three children and I embarked on a journey to find healing and create new memories together as a family. We've had many ups and downs along the way, a lot of laughter and even more tears, but this trip to Europe was a pivotal time for us, proving to each other that we, as a family of four - with the help and support of incredible friends - are in this together and will make it. This is our story.
