Founder & Owner.
Ashley Yazzie-Ward graduated from Stephens College (the second oldest women's college in the nation) with a B.F.A. in Theater. Ashley's background in acting and visual communications have influenced her interests in design, composition, photography, story telling, and tone. Throughout Ashley's career she has been on both the management and merchandising spectrums of the retail business. Additionally freelancing with social media, editorial styling, and writing for several magazines on the topics of style, creativity, and food. She Gathers is the ultimate culmination of her collective passions.
Ashley is happily married to Nathan Ward with three children Ambra (7), Hudson (6), and Silas (1). When she isn't running her business and spending time with her family, her nose is stuck in a book with a pen to write in the margins. The home and hostess maven is often found planning a travel destination, an adventure to experience, or hosting a sumptuous dinner for laughing and feasting with her friends. Ashley believes in the power of the perfect shade of coral lipstick, a strong pot of jasmine green tea, a warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookie plucked from the cooling rack, and the haunting strains of The Kills.
