About Me

DC, 2010.

My name is Ashley Funderburk and I work as the Content Marketing Assistant at Optimized Assets. I originally attended WCU as a Music Education major, but found PR somewhere along the way and instantly fell in love! That’s a long story for a rather rainy day. College was a huge learning experience for me. It was a roller coaster ride for sure, but somehow I have managed to find exactly where I belong. I moved home back in 2012 after spending almost five amazing years in the mountains, making the best friends a girl could ask for and creating some unforgettable memories.

While I 100% think people should pursue college degrees, there is no denying the fact not everyone is cut out for school. I am only saying this because I am one of those people. When I moved back home I had planned to attend a local University to finish my almost complete Bachelor’s Degree and life happened and I welcomed my amazing son Michael into the world. I would not change a minute of this, because being a mom is the biggest blessing I could have ever hoped for.

I consider myself to be a highly motivated individual that is very passionate about music, content marketing, research, writing, campaigns, event planning, social media, public speaking, working in a team setting, and like everyone else out there I am constantly eager to learn something new. 

If you would like to see the work that I have done you can view my resume and my portfolio on this site. You can contact me by reaching out to me on any of my social media platforms or by email.

Side note: Reese cups are my weakness. Music and PR have my heart, along with my family and friends. Did I mention I LOVE coffee? Oh, and black and white pictures are my favorite.
