We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Nell Tipton and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ashley, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
There was a major gap in the Plus Size Offerings and as a Plus Size Designer and having the capacity to manufacturer I knew I had the ability to make a difference.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am constantly evolving and growing on this path called life. Every day brings new challenges and opportunities. When the pandemic hit I was in a position to Design and Create Face Coverings. For the past year we had to change the focus of our company to support the global crisis. I am proud to say that my company donated over 5,000 masks to front-line workers and health-care professionals. Now that we can see an end to this pandemic I am excited about my next creations, opportunities and challenges!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Since I live in San Diego there is so much to do outdoors. We could literally walk to the San Diego Zoo and the world famous Balboa Park. Then we would be off to the beach– dog beach that is so that my best friend/puppy Denim could come with!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My staff. I don’t know where I would be or how I could do it without my dedicated staff. So shout out to Andrew, Eddie, Gerrson, Joe and Denim!
