Hi, I'm Ashley! I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, where I developed a deep appreciation for the rich history and culture of my city. As I grew up, I became increasingly curious about other unique destinations around the world and made it a personal mission to explore as many as possible.
After completing my Master's in Business Administration, I made the move to New York City and began my career in the luxury fashion industry, where I worked for a decade. Despite my busy corporate 9-5 desk job, I always made time to travel both domestically and internationally. I thoroughly researched and planned every detail of my trips, and my passion for travel soon made me a go-to resource for friends, family, and colleagues seeking recommendations.
In 2021, I decided to turn my passion for travel into a full-time career and founded The Atlas Upgrade. This venture has allowed me to combine my love of exploring new destinations with my detail-oriented nature, and I find the process of designing unique and memorable travel experiences for my clients to be incredibly rewarding. I feel fortunate to be able to turn my passion into my profession and am excited to continue helping others make unforgettable travel memories.
"I wanted to send a HUGE thank you for helping us with our trip to Anguilla. It was absolutely amazing, and the note with bottle of wine was such a special treat. Also the upgrade was amazing! I really can’t thank you enough. The staff at the resort spoke very highly of you. Our experience was so good and I believe you had a lot to do with it. I can’t wait to work with you again in the future—we were in heaven." - Allie M.
"Working with Ashley at The Atlas Upgrade was a great experience. The Atlas Upgrade elevated our travel experience, and we would definitely work with The Atlas Upgrade again and recommend this agency to our friends and family." - Nicole S.
