We Speak

Real women. real business. real stories.

Up close and personal with the minds behind Mixtroz.

Engaging, energizing, and exciting – Ashlee’s presentation (complemented by her witty and talented partner, Kerry) kept our students entertained and interested (no small feat) throughout her talk. She shared candidly about the ‘real life’ of a start-up founder and provided valuable and actionable advice to budding entrepreneurs in particular, but general lessons to all heading into the workforce soon. No reading assignment, case study, or class discussion can have the same effect as listening to Ashlee and Kerry tell their story!

Kerry and Ashlee are changing the way people see women innovators and entrepreneurs. They are thought leaders in our community (Nashville) and it’s an honor to have them speak and mentor young girls every year at our Girls To The Moon events.
— Courtenay Rogers, Co-Founder, Girls To The Moon
