Youth Program Director
Hi there! My name is Ashley! I am a North Carolinian, born and raised from Clayton to Raleigh and everywhere in between. During my journey, I picked up a menagerie of artistic skills including but not limited to, drawing, painting, sculpting, digital painting, animating, you name it! I was a freelance artist, with AnniMills LLC, for 8 years after graduating from Living Arts College in 2010 where I created graphics for puzzles in the children’s section of the local newspaper. Shortly after ending my contract with AnniMills in 2018 and became the Director of Youth Services for Primetime, RTD’s Bullying Awareness program in March 2019. Helping children handle their emotional distress through art during this ever changing, increasingly dangerous world is my calling. I thoroughly believe that we were meant to live for so much more than the mediocrity we believe of ourselves. Through God’s might and grace, we’re gonna be the very best! That no one ever was!
