I'm a graphic and web designer helping female entrepreneurs grow their business and share their vision with the world. I was raised in Louisiana, but I'm currently living in Houston with a super supportive boyfriend and a sassy Wirehaired Pointer named Dakota. Most days I'm bribing my dog with treats for cuddles, watching UK crime shows, or being an amateur foodie around town. 

If you're looking for a tech nerd with a strategic mind, I'm your girl.

read my abridged life story

FIRST. SECOND. THIRD. FOURTH.

hey hey!

My love for tech, design and coding started at a very early age. 

I was definitely one of those kids that spent hours on the computer (with our very terrible internet connection) tinkering with code to get my Myspace profile just right.

I didn’t have other creative avenues at the time: I didn’t draw, paint or play music (I joined my high school's Color Guard a few years later) so teaching myself how to code and changing the design of my Myspace profile was all I had.

That love for creating and experimenting got tucked away as I grew up and graduated college. It took me a few years after graduating to let go of the feeling that I wasn’t living up to my potential and that I missed my calling. I needed something to fill this void I had in my heart.

I think I slowly came to the realization that: A) I want to set my own schedule and only speak to people that I want too. B) I have an eye for design that I can share and C) I want to help other women fill their work lives with joy and their personal lives with abundance.

That’s REALLY what the Fourth House is. 

My way of passionately helping other women stand out as who they are and show up for their people the best way they can.

Let's get real.

a few hot fire questions

next question

Q1: Did you always want to be a designer or run a business?

No and Yes. I was convinced that getting my PH.D in Psychology was the only path. I was going to open up my own practice or work at a drug rehab facility for the rest of my life. So when I didn't apply to grad school, I found myself stuck at jobs that I hated but needed so I could survive. 

Q2: Is the Fourth House Co your first business?

Nope!  First I had a little photography side hustle......that went nowhere. Then I started a social media management side hustle. Yeah, that went nowhere too. Finally I started a web design brand called Hued Design Studio that I rebranded into The Fourth House Co. It’s been a wild ride!

Previous Question

Q3: Who has been the most influential person in your life?

Probably my mom. I would love to be half the mother she is. Growing up my mom would tell me this dream she had of opening up her own computer repair shop once she got out of the military. She was my inspiration to start my own business and help other women make their dreams a reality. 

Previous Question

Q5: Who do you admire?

My boyfriend Kario for his generosity, patience, and calm demeanor. Rihanna for her business acumen, Beyoncé for her attention to detail and dedication, and Billy Porter for staying true to himself no matter who was watching or the cost. And my mom for her “everything is gonna be ok” personality. 

Previous Question

Q6: Where do you see yourself in 3 years, 5 years, 7 years, and 10 years?

In 3 years, I want to be in the six figures, in a three story house in Houston working from my home office. In 5 years, in a physical office with a team. In 7 years, traveling the country hosting retreats and speaking at retreats/conferences. In 10 years, opening my own co-working space in Houston.

that's your brain trying to protect you.

You made it this far because you have grit. You have perseverance. There’s something in your brain that is curious about what else is out there for you and it's pushing you forward.

This is a scary road that we’re on, you and I. It’s totally up to us to build the life that we want and the money that we make. We only have ourselves and the high (and somewhat realistic) expectations that we set for ourselves. We will falter. We will cry. We will hang our heads in our hands and scream.

Do it. Scream as loud as you can whenever you feel you have too. Cry when you have too. Say “fuck it” and leave your to-do list on your desk for tomorrow.

Because there is always tomorrow. Tomorrow will always come, and you'll get another chance to try again. To fail again. To succeed again.

Be kind to yourself. Be kind to that little girl inside you that’s afraid of the next step.

Grab her hand and keep going. 

xo, Ashleigh

I’m cheering you on.
