When asked what Women’s History Month means to her, Ashlee shared:
Women’s History Month is very special to me. Having two girls and growing up with strong women in my life, it is so wonderful to be able to take the time to recognize them. Many only celebrate the MAJOR accomplishments women have made in history, but I love when we celebrate the small acts women do every day that make a profound difference. From the stay at home mom to the woman who is running a company, each woman is special in their own way and contributes to the positive changes we make in society. I often think of the quote by Mother Teresa, “Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love.”
Thank you, Ashlee. You’re what Women’s History Month is all about.
