Member Stories: Ashley Allen πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Ashley Allen was born and raised in Southern California. USA. She is an entrepreneur, mother of 3, a non-binary lesbian and Salesforce consultant.

Shortly out of college, having just relocated to Buffalo, NY with her now ex-husband, Ashley found out she was pregnant with their second daughter. Broke and desperate for a job, she wanted to find work at home so that she could keep working after the baby was born.

Priscila has a pretty unusual hobby – flying trapeze – like that one you see in the circus where someone throws some somersaults and someone else catches you on the other side (!).

You can see some videos on Priscila’s Instagram if you’re curious.
