Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Albertson.
Hi Ashley, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Ashley Albertson and I am the Corporate Director of Communications for Live the Life. I began working with Live the Life as a volunteer before I can really remember, this non-profit is my dad’s legacy and he started it in the extra room of our townhouse when I was 7.
Since then, I have worked helping with everything from taking out the trash, to graphic design and now moving our mission, to strengthen marriages and families, forward even more to communities in Florida and beyond. I am passionate about this work because I went through an incredibly toxic relationship that ended with a divorce. I want to work to make sure no one else has to go through what I went through.
I ignored red flags, I believed I could change him, I didn’t think I was worthy enough of the love that I desired. I want to give hope to young people to have the right foundation, the knowledge, and the empowerment to thrive in relationships, not settle.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Through my work at Live the Life I have had to face many of my triggers from my past relationship and I have been given the tools to work through them.
I have also been encouraged to gain more knowledge and create a singles curriculum that will help with my dream of educating and empowering young adults to have their best relationships.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am determined. When I set my mind to something, I don’t stop until I complete it. This is sometimes to my detriment, I have a problem finding time to rest, but the work I do is so fulfilling that I rarely feel burnt out.
I also know all of our curriculums and programs backward and forwards and could talk your ear off about all of them.
I have recently been reading a lot of books on how sex affects the brain and it’s my favorite thing to educate people on the chemicals that happen with sexual intimacy and what they mean to relationships.
How do you define success?
Success, to me, is being proud of the work that you do.
