What interests Ashley the most about Digital Marketing is that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution; it’s a dynamic industry that’s constantly evolving and requires getting to know each client to build a tailored strategy. When Ashley graduated from Clemson University in 2015 with a B.S. in Marketing and Duke University in 2017 with a Masters of Management Studies, she first started her career as a Marketing Generalist at a mid-size agency in Boston, MA. Here, she learned the ins and outs of a variety of marketing tactics, but after 3.5 years, she realized that Paid Search, LinkedIn, and Paid Social are where she has the most interest because she can help clients not only create a strategy but also develop short-hand content. Joining the TargetMarket team as a Certified Paid Ad & SEO Specialist has been a dream come true because she can dive deeper into the paid side of marketing while helping clients on a daily basis.
When she isn’t reading up on the latest Google, LinkedIn, and Paid Social best practices, Ashley loves spending time with family in New England and SC, being on the water, watching Clemson football, cooking, and playing with her puppy.

Considering the culinary town that Charleston is, and the fact that her husband is a local chef, it’s not surprising that a significant amount of her free time is spent eating and trying new restaurants.

She frequently says, “Friends don’t let friends paint cars, that’s what vinyl is for.”
On a day off, you will most likely find Lindsey at an improv show or home with her husband, Brian, and their three cats. You can always spot her car because it has a unicorn cat eating a donut on the hood.
